Above all I am a problem solver. No matter what the genre…I have always wanted to know how things work and strive to understand them completely: why foods tastes so good (cooking), why music is pleasing to the ear (music theory), how an actor can make you cry and laugh at will (drama), how a massive sailboat can harness the wind and travel great distances (ocean classroom – from Maine to Puerto Rico), how buildings can last thousands of years and still impress (Architecture), or why a beautifully designed soap dish can make someone smile every day (Industrial Design), how to love the country and live in the city (rooftop gardens). These are all skills I developed out of curiosity and I am fortunate enough to have the training to turn these experiences into business. When people ask me what I do, I have learned to say…“I turn problems into products.”
