I've always been a tinkerer. Legos were my favorite growing up. I used to build from the instructions first. Inevitably I'd end up with a massive box of random pieces to pick from, because I wasn't one to keep my Legos on the shelf. My Legos were well-used. And as that box of random, messy Legos grew, I realized how big of an opportunity it was. With that box I could build whatever I put my mind to. Hybrid spaceships / castles / speedboats emerged from the mess.
In my work, I often face complex problems and messy situations where it's unclear how we'll move forward. I think most of us do these days, in fact. To me it feels a lot like looking at that box of Legos; what are the component parts, how do they fit together? That's what I love about what I do. Digging in to messy problems to come out with creative solutions is incredibly rewarding. And it's what I've focused my career on to date: building teams at early stage companies that offer learning solutions to other companies.
I've spent the last 6 years building a world-class learning content team at Grovo and then building and testing social learning solutions at Everwise. Now I'm starting out with a new experiment, called Nextt. We hope that we can empower people to bring their ideas to life by running small, light experiments. It's going to be fun.
