about

As a creative business strategist, I work as an advisor and consultant, to help plan, create and develop new ideas, concepts and solutions, with individuals and organizations looking for new paths of growth.

I also continue to learn, research and speak on emotions and “emotion-centered design“.

In a nutshell, I am an experience collector with a special ability to understand the big picture and help guide change. I bring together life experiences, data, ethnography, trends, books, information, thinkers and ongoing learnings, to help improve, grow, solve a problem or re-think a project. 

My diverse background – in psychology, communications, technology, consumer behaviour, design, marketing/PR, visual arts, education, travel, music, public administration, health, media, publishing, UX, web services and others – offers out-of-the-box thinking, a fresh lens and unique viewpoint through which to innovate, think and act differently.

Presently, I collaborate with Raising the Floor to help build the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure, with Grupo-SM/Educamos, and with individual clients. I also serve as an Advisor and Strategist at SEKG (sekg.net), and the Doug Engelbart Institute (dougengelbart.org).

And last, but not least, I have been invited to coordinate the “Emotion-Centered Design in HCI” session at the 19th International Conference in Human-Computer Interaction.
