I am comfortable with change, chaos and I value learnings gained from others business failures, at ease working in situations without a defined roadmap. I am open to learning and discovery, highly curious, inquisitive and creative. Constantly searching for the next scalable “S Curve” in a business that will deliver “wow” consumer experiences and keep us ahead of the competition. Readily able to wear multiple hats and comfortable celebrating failure when it leads to learning and iteration.
