Entrepreneur, sales leader, designer and generalist; I'm a passionate leader with a huge level of experience in sales, business and design. I have been a critical part of the building of Bouncepad over the last 5 years and am now looking for my next challenge.
My main passions are design, music and food - the perfect trio! You might find me most weekends renovating my beautiful home in Somerville, or otherwise cooking with/for my beautiful wife.
Since a very early age, I became fascinated by the prospect of bettering the world around me. Problem solving has always been a big passion of mine and has stayed with me throughout my life. Problems lead to better solutions and improving people’s lives or their experiences.
My approach is to really get to grips with the problem, and get under the skin of the user to fully comprehend their issues and why this is important to them. Empathizing with the user and asking them questions to uncover the deeper truths will eventually allow me to observe any specific patterns.
I prefer to generate ideas quickly and in a group when possible. There are no bad ideas, just some more outlandish than other, that often can open the door to a new way of thinking. As quickly as a direction is clear, creating a prototype or series of prototypes and testing the direction is essential to analyze if the chosen path is the correct one. Keeping the user as close to this process as possible is fundamental.
Process improvement is a huge part of my personality and the perfectionist in me always wants to improve and make it better. Improving this process is no different.
