Engage your audience with dynamic learning experiences
I'm on a mission
the way we
gather and learn.
YOU KNOW THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY
You’ve done the sit-and-listen lecture-and-slideshow based programs a hundred times, and it's just not delivering results.
You notice people distractedly checking their phones and you wonder how much of this they will even retain.
You can envision the room filled with energy, engagement, profound insight, and meaningful connections, but you just don’t know how to get there.
Together, we have an amazing opportunity to create a new paradigm of adult learning and education.
The art of Experience Design helps you intentionally craft an event to maximize the experience of each participant, and is based on taking participants on a transformative journey that is interactive, engaging, actionable and fun.
As an Experience Designer, I help you transform information into experiences so you can engage your audience and produce profound impact and lasting results.
I specialize in experiential learning, which helps participants learn through their own direct experience in the moment, and then apply that learning to other real life situations.
I design and facilitate exercises that are thematically aligned with your objectives, so that the experiences themselves deliver the lessons and insights you are wanting your audience to have.
I love working on events with large groups of people from hundreds to thousands, and am an expert at scaling intimacy - making a crowd of 100 people feel like a gathering of 10.

Learn how to build connection and design transformative events
In this highly experiential two-day intensive training and design sprint, you will learn how to design both in-person and virtual experiences that maximize the impact for attendees, so that participants walk away feeling transformed, inspired, and part of a community.
My practice is guided by four design pillars
Avoid boredom at all costs! Our approach shifts employees from passive receivers to active participants. The average adult attention span is 8 seconds. If you don’t present information in a dynamic way that captures attention, you simply can’t make an impact.
No more information overwhelm! Instead of abstract concepts or theories, we help you determine what information is most vital in the moment and how to make it immediately tangible and practical.
Every in-person program is an opportunity to create connection and community. Rather than long lectures from one person at the front of the room, our exercises help participants actively learn from each other, creating deeper personal and professional relationships
Everyone wants to have more fun! A playful approach takes the pressure off of learning new skills, and actually helps build new neural pathways, increasing problem-solving skills, creativity and innovation.
