I’m a big believer in the Coraggio approach of maintaining a balanced emphasis on people and process when designing every project. If we don’t bring a rigorous process and simultaneously create an experience that is engaging and enlightening for the client’s team, we won’t be able to help them achieve their full potential. My arts background helps me understand what it takes to nurture creative thinking, and the insight I’ve gleaned from past projects helps me pose tough questions that challenge clients to think in different ways.
I recharge by throwing pots in my pottery studio, playing my guitar or by hoisting a backpack and getting “lost” on a beautiful Pacific Northwest trail.
