Impact is king. I’ve worked in many fields but making a dent in the world is always at the forefront for me. I like viewing big-impact problems through the creative lens of design thinking and supported with the rigor of engineering fundamentals.
The people at Healthcare Human Factors are amazing. We have a group of smart, empathetic, patient-focused engineers and designers working on important problems. It’s a combo that’s hard to beat.
Outside of work I can be found teaching my 5 month old baby to walk and playing obscure sports like Ultimate and Squash.
