Having vastly different viewpoints, experiences, and skills is something that gets me really jazzed in any setting, as it really shows me the potential we have for effecting positive change in what we do. I love to hear and be heard, and work to create safe spaces for that to be possible. Whether its in my Community role at Autodesk, my artist studio co-op, my cycling team, or in chats with friends, I thrive in being a bit of a switchboard operator for people's needs - digging into the greater resource that we can all be to one another.
