What does “customer driven” mean to you?
Customer driven means the ability to learn and understand the customer’s needs to the point where you can anticipate and exceed their expectations.
What are your favorite ways to collaborate with clients and co-workers?
I love the creative process of sitting down and identifying the problem, followed by a quick iterative process working closely with the client to develop a prototype solution that can then be turned into a final product.
How do you drive results in your work?
I focus on the final customer objective and identify the main drivers to ensure that everything I do brings me closer to meeting or exceeding the target objective.
How do you build flexibility into your engagements?
I keep my eyes open for opportunities that arise during the engagement. When an opportunity is identified, I work closely with the client to see how we can incorporate it into the project.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
I like to follow politics and I am also interested in environmental issues.
