What I Am Doing Now
Currently I am the Chief Creative Officer at Tensegrity Studio in Madison, Wisconsin. I am exploring ways to apply leadership skills and creativity to make work a better place for all employees.
Simply put, many managers are stuck in old-fashioned and unproductive ways of getting the best out of their teams. It's time to "rethink leadership" and explore new ways of bringing autonomy and purpose to the people with whom they work every day. My goal is to help everyone -- leaders, managers, and individuals -- to be their best.
Where I've Been
I have visited more than eighty countries and done business in more than sixty countries. I have worked with universities, organizations, and global enterprises including American Family Insurance, Franklin College, Purdue University, Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis, University of Wroclaw, Victoria' Secret, Dublin City University, Emirates Airlines, Nippon Life, and many others.
My ten years of executive experience includes three years of work in Asia Pacific based from Tokyo, and two years of work in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
There is nothing like the experience of living in another country for an extended time. You develop a greater empathy for other people and gain memories that will last a lifetime. Plus it is great to have friends from around the world!
