Insights

New York

Coming from academic anthropology, I bring an expansive and adaptable toolkit of human-centered research methods to the design process. I look for the themes and patterns in how people do what they do, and I’m endlessly fascinated by what I find.

My PhD trained me to build effective research paths that quickly get from little questions to big answers. As a consultant, I use those skills to analyze customer behavior across many different industries, and to help companies innovate their offerings based on what I discover.
