“I love the dynamism of the people I work with and the challenges we help solve at Purple. I feel like I’m able to grow as a person and a professional each day.”

“The most valuable advice I’ve ever been given in life came from my grandfather. He told me that it did not matter what I did in my professional career, I would be successful if I could do these two things: manage my time and adapt to change. That advice frames my approach to how I work and how I look at the challenges our clients face to tailor my creative approach and deliver the best solutions.”

“A quote I keep close at hand is from Lindo Leader of IBM, who said, ‘I strive for two things in design: simplicity and clarity. Great design is born of those two things.’”
