"Always look on the bright side of life!"

I have had a career in education and energy. Currently, I am involved in two potential startups in the travel space. I have won several innovation challenges, including two in food tech. I am passionate about food, travel and the environment. Blog: Twitter:

"Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense"

As a researcher, I am interested in collaboration, socio-material practices, culture and space. I teach design thinking, organizational behavior and qualitative methods. I discovered OpenIDEO as I started working in fall 2010 on a research project on open innovation and since then have participated in multiple challenges, and keep coming back!
