I'm a data-informed and outcomes-focused product strategist with 15+ years experience solving hard problems in non-profit, academic and retail industries. Currently, I manage store tools and technology for REI Co-Op, a position that fuses my passions for experience design and the outdoors.
When I'm not working, you can usually find me running a trail, cruising around Pittsburgh on a bike, solving a boulder problem or shredding the slopes.
