About Coonoor

I am a curious person with a varied background that includes work in television entertainment, nonprofit international development, journalism, and currently strategy and innovation consulting. I am passionate about design thinking and design. I'm a trained and experience facilitator and am also a graphic/visual recorder. I do a lot of improv comedy in my spare time and constantly see parallels to innovation and design work. I am a great connector of people and love using my networks to help others. I bring enthusiasm, energy, focus, creativity, and wit to any team. I delight in questioning assumptions and love all things counter intuitive. I despise office/personality politics and will always be about the work and the fun. I love the starts of things and reinvention, which is why I'm so eager to get involved with start-ups.

I particularly have a knack for conceiving of alternative revenue streams and thinking of non-intuitive customer bases for products and services.
