My favorite motto

Get 1% better everyday.

The natural talent I’d like to be gifted with

Swimming. I tried to learn, but I always sink like a rock.

What “unconventional consulting” means to me

Being unconventional is the freedom to find innovative solutions to difficult client challenges by drawing insights and diverse perspectives from uncommon sources. By leveraging the discipline, structure and frameworks of standard consulting methods, we can create space to collaborate and be creative with our team and clients.

My hobby

I love playing competitive sports in general and tennis in particular. My game style closely reflects my personality.

The most valuable piece of advice I’ve ever received

“Be in the moment.” I’m able to apply this simple advice across all aspects of my life, from making a final push during a long-run (“put one foot in front of the other”), to coping with grief (“take it one day at a time”), to everyday activities such as spending quality time with family (putting down my digital devices).

One word my colleagues use to describe me
