Global mindset

Ski instructor, yoga teacher, bread baker, radio host, manager, writer. These are some of the varied jobs I've had, adapting and learning different methods of communication to effectively lead a team.

As a bread baker I managed the schedule of 1000 loaves of bread, as an operations coordinator I managed a team of 60+ and multiple projects with varying timelines and as a user researcher I managed a project with multiple stakeholders.

Having lived in multiple countries I realize that even if we share  a common language, miscommunication can occur. I strive to use inclusive and welcoming methods of communication and consider cultures when developing products and connection.

CURIOUS INTENTION.

RESPONSIBLE CURATOR. 

TANGIBLE PARTICIPANT.
