### Values
I consider my process human-oriented, evolving, and adaptable. There is no one-size-fit-all approach, rather common considerations including: Who are we solving problems for? Who am I working with? How do we best communicate? What inspires them? What inspires us? What inspires our user? How can we evolve our practice? These questions form the foundation for my approach. Though, deeper than my process are my values:
* Candor and respect are not mutually exclusive; both must be practiced simultaneously
* Diversity in all forms is essential and good ideas can come from anywhere; inside and outside the industry, the company, up, down, and across the org chart
* Diversity in all forms is essential
* Always assume best intentions in others: listen, learn, and be humble
* Teams must move together cohesively with shared purpose and common goals
* The known unknown: know that you don’t know
* Build on strengths, not weaknesses
* Build on strengths and intrinsic motivations
* Trust is a precursor to great work
### Influences
* [Edward Tufte](https://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/) has taught me the essentials in information design and seeing beauty in the most simple things. Key lessons: graphical integrity, keep items in space not time (same vs different pages), avoid powerpoint, and to never use pie charts.
