"Kow-a-bunga!!"(Dr. WHO) & "That's not a hat! It's an elephant"(Le Petit Prince)"
I'm a cultural anthropologist/ethnographer at heart. I majored in anthropology and I bring it into everything I do. I'm working in sales and operations management currently, but it's not where my heart is. In my freetime, I develop myself intellectually and academically by teaching myself Python, by writing/learning songs on my ukulele or guitar, by blogging about life or climate/science, by teaching/doing yoga, or by learning more about design and UX research. My best days off are spent with my dog. I joined OpenIDEO because I want to do work similar to what they do and I love to collaborate.
