Learning Designer. Facilitator.
Almost a decade ago I turned my two major fears - being funny on a stage and being alone - into action. I took improv classes and challenged myself to go on over 100 first dates (and write about them). Did I fall in love? Absolutely…
Not with any of my dates but with the art of improvisation.
To my surprise the skills and behaviors I practiced in improv directly translated into my professional and personal life. I grew into a more self-aware, empathetic, adaptable, and collaborative leader. I learned to navigate chaos with confidence and also have fun.
Improv changed the way I see the world and how I participate (play) in it.
My mission now is to share these insights with individuals and teams. I design and facilitate programs that are rooted in play. They focus on building leadership, communication, and creativity skills using methods from experiential learning and improvisational theater (more about my process here). I also partner with a group of smart, diverse, and inspirational people to deliver impactful programs for our clients.
