Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four asking, “why”. — Me

Questioning assumptions

Before we start I might ask:

  • Why are we making this?
  • Who does this effect?
  • How will it make money?
  • How can this help people?
  • How can this hurt people?

Now you might ask, “why all these questions”. I ask questions to find a shared understanding of our challenges and goals. When we have a shared understanding we can increase our chance of success.

My perspective

I’m a liberal, progressive, intersectional feminist. I value transparency, inclusivity, and an anti-racist agenda.

I practice the gentle art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I love to cook and share food with my family and friends. And there‘s a good chance I’m listening to a podcast right now.

My pronouns are he/him/his.
