Over the last 25+ years, I have talked my way into several unique jobs without realising I was doing so. This serendipity led to incredible roles requiring innovation, creativity and adaptability. From a challenged inner-city classroom teacher to learn-on-the-job technology specialist to VP of All Things Fun, Meaningful, & Rewarding, to Corporate Foundation Executive Director, to Head of a corporate startup accelerator, to Chief Play Officer (& Naive Expert), I'm constantly listening, learning, and loving opportunities to work with adults who are kids at heart.

With the happy accidents of landing metamorphic roles that have taken me from Atlanta to San Francisco, Singapore, and Sydney, I've learned some things about being adaptable and flexible when things went right and not so right.

Through Playful Purpose, I work with corporate teams, startups and individuals to use the power of play and improv to be more collaborative, communicative and creative. I'm on a mission to unleash the raw power of human interaction and technology, combining the magic of Applied Improv with the infinite possibilities of Artificial Intelligence. Come play as I'm questioning everything, reimagining what's possible, and having a ton of fun along the way!
