Not everything that counts can be counted. Not everything that can be counted counts.

Albert Einstein
My Work

These infamous words attributed to Einstein summarize my instinctive approach to social problem solving. When I first sought formal training I believed my strength was in my words, but I was determined to build comprehensive skills so I could be effective. Despite my self-doubt, my skills in survey design and quantitative analysis surpassed what I knew existed. Turns out figures are downright fun. Numbers capture the essence of a program, organization, or event in a soundbite; words, sounds, and images illustrate meaning. While the beautiful linear logic of surveys and other quantitative metrics make me sing, Einstein’s wisdom ensures I find the right lyrics and rhythm.
