I am the co-founder of the NYC Innovation Collective, a network of 70+ incubators, accelerators and innovation programs based in New York City.

In addition to working with Fortune 500 companies to design innovation and leadership workshops, I speak and lead programs at conferences such as Fast Company’s Innovation Festival, Harvard Social Enterprise Conference, HarvardxDesign, A Better World By Design, Adobe’s 99u, the Social Good Summit and many others.

In addition to frequent travel to far-flung places, I love all things chocolate and make my way around New York on a midnight blue Vespa.
