What projects are you most excited about?

Where do I start?! Right now, I'm most excited to dive deep into conversations with brand partners (both emerging and established) to learn what insights they need from their target consumers. From there, I'm able to get creative in crafting the perfect questions to get them the answers they need to adapt, pivot or change their product or strategy.
