Eight Things About Me

Flip Away

What is your name?


Do you have a nickname that your friends and family use?

No nickname for me :-)

What is your role in the company?

Strategy & Design

What are the skills that you bring to your work?

My love of organization, variety, details, analysis, and people.


What is your approach to work?

I like to understand why I am doing things and then do them right. I like to take ownership of what I do and treat clients and colleagues like I would want to be treated. If I give my energy to something, it’s because I believe in it and I want to see it succeed. This is true not just for my own life and the company that I work for, but also the companies that Create Studios do work for. As a child I was taught that if a thing is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. I try my best to live up to that.

What do you like to do for fun?

I like to go tent-camping and hiking. I very much love being out in the sunshine and in nature. I believe that the secret to staying young is to say 'yes' to new experiences. A lot of times good things have happened to me when I have said 'yes' to new experiences.

What is your favorite app or web-site right now?

I love yelp, TED, basecamp (that we use for work) and a site that a friend of mine created called ToDoodle that keeps me organized on a personal level in a fun way.

Complete this sentence: If you really knew me, you would know that…

I am fascinated by the vastness of the internal and external Universe, and I like to talk to strangers.
