What I Love


What Inspires Me

1:1 conversations, the cusp of disciplines, exploration trips, learning how things are made and improvising it myself, listening to audiobooks


A Favorite Moment at Peer Insight

Three weeks into my time here, we had a “PI Olympics” where 3 teams completed mini-challenges over 2 weeks for the top prize. I was most impressed by how everyone carved time out of their busy schedules to have fun for 30 minutes, then immediately got back to their laser-focused work mode. The cherry on top? When team Momma Drama O’rama showed up with custom made t-shirts with George’s face on it (George was the competition judge). We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we take whatever we do seriously.
