I have built my career on the belief that change appears incrementally… until it’s too late.

At Perkins+Will, I lead our global knowledge efforts. My team delivers critical intelligence in real-time to an internal audience of 2,300+ staff and to an external roster of client accounts. We create intelligence by linking data with insights.
