I’m tickled by what makes us tick.

 

As a performer, playwright, and producer, I wade into the mess of human behavior.

Offstage, I wrangle other creatives. I lead user research, write, and oversee product and experience design. I ask questions: What do customers crave? How do teams and technology collaborate? Why does a business implode—or win it all?

The net result: I partner with designers and other creatives to develop brands, products, and stories that propel us forward.

Most recently, I have led brand strategy and research at Montaag, a design consultancy that primarily focuses on future technology and consumer experiences: making sure machines play well with humans.

If the sparks fly, I take on freelance research, branding, and strategy projects. I also teach and train others in design thinking and practice.

I am the Founder and Co-Artistic Director of Dugway Proving Ground Theater.

I was born and raised in Rhode Island, a splendid little place.

I hold a B.A. from Brown University, with a mishmosh of coursework and experience at RISD.

I am happy to talk shop about research, writing, and alternative pathways to producing your own art. It’s a big world out there—no need to go it alone.
