I'm the Director of Strategy and Operations at Etsy, where I manage the operational rhythm of the the company's core business and support its senior leadership team.

Previously, I managed the Strategy and Operations team at Spotify, whose mission was to design and run the company's strategic planning and execution model, Spotify Rhythm.

I have a passion for managing and encapsulating organizational complexity. I do this by designing and running scalable agile systems for strategic planning and execution, and by coaching teams in responsive ways of working. In all that I do, I optimize for continuous improvement, people over process, iterative decision-making, fairness and generosity.

In my spare time, you can find me writing articles about music and art, dancing to techno, learning languages, stalking dogs on the NYC subway, eating bread, subverting the patriarchy, wearing glitter, or snorting at bad puns.
