At Facebook, I apply an expansive thinking and entrepreneurial model to maximize my impact as Facebook Seattle office’s first Research Program Manager.

It can be easy to stay close to the project or problem at hand and divergent thinking can be difficult. I wanted to share some things that have helped me. I’d love to hear your ideas, tips/tricks so feel free to comment in this post.
