Engaging, Relevant & Personalized Immersive Development Experiences

What if you could bring an experience to your organization that would get everyone in the group actually excited to be interacting with one another?

I work with organizations who are passionate about making

innovation more than just a buzz word.


If you’re ready to use science and the power of play to strengthen communication, relationship building, leader/personal development and collaboration skills in your organization, choose your desire below.

Every event is strategically designed to foster deeper connection & maximize time investment by incorporating adaptive problem solving with a multidisciplinary approach from my two decades in the sciences.


Your event will be uniquely crafted for your most urgent needs with just the right combination of research based scientific strategies, design thinking, LEGO Serious Play organizational psychology methodologies, and entertainment.

  • Diagnose common team dysfunctions and discuss in a playful, non-threatening way
