Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

I’ve loved science and learning for as long as I can remember.  I like to turn over rocks to see what’s underneath.  I like it when one question leads to 10 more.  The process of peeling away layers to get to some new understanding has always been deeply satisfying.  I studied physics as an undergrad because it seemed to be all about identifying patterns and giving form to chaos.

 
At some point I realized there are countless questions, countless problems to solve, but finite time.  I realized the importance of problem selection and paying attention when opportunities present themselves.  In graduate school at the University of Washington I found inspiration and support in a community of entrepreneurial engineering students and slowly developed the confidence (foolishness?) to co-found a medical tech startup.  Building something new with my team was incredibly rewarding and a flood of learning.  Looking back, I did not expect one of the most important lessons I would learn would be: a clear story is as important as good technology. 
 
I am inspired by Xinova’s vision of connecting problem solvers with valuable, unsolved problems and energized by the personal connections we make with our innovators and our customers.  I love working with a team of passionate, smart people to build a new engine for innovation.    
 
After growing up in the desert, I also love the Pacific Northwest where we have mountains and water and everything is green. I enjoy spending time with my family, music, reading, cooking (and eating), travelling, and skiing.
