I've worked across a variety of different environments and industries, across a variety of roles — all in the service of seeking solutions and driving innovation. And have been involved in projects engaging in HCD, Agile / Lean, and UX double diamond processes.

Fundamentally, at it's core, design is about gathering insights in context (discovery), sense making and solution framing (definition), and solution ideation (design).

I came into the practice as a generalist; what we call a "full stack designer" today. I've since involved myself more towards upfront problem and solution framing.

I'm currently seeking environments and roles where design is involved in both strategy and execution.
