Joined Kinesis:

As Kinesis’ Creative Director, Jeff helps our clients set a strategic vision that invokes creativity and design thinking as a means for transformation.

He brings over two decades of experience in leadership and team development to our work with clients, enabling them to center people, purpose, and humanity in their businesses.

Jeff is passionate about cultivating authenticity in the work process and creating environments where people can show up as their full selves. He believes that bringing diverse perspectives together is key to launching successful business endeavors. His creative quest draws from principles of neuroscience and psychology – namely, knowing how and why people react to stimuli helps him articulate how to create better experiences for people. Jeff believes that building human-centric businesses is the future because when we embrace our full humanity, we can build better companies and teams.
