I'm a biodesign consultant that focuses on small yet ambitious initiatives with a regenerative mission, because they can have a tremendous ripple effect.
From my experience working as an innovation consultant with large ventures, the tendency to adapt to change and rate of transformation is quite slow. As a response, I've dedicated my creative consulting practice to coach pioneering trailblazers in design, science, and technology. I believe that the more agile you are, the greater the potential you have to create waves of positive social and sustainable impact – on an immediate and tangible timescale.

Kassandra changed everything for my brand. If you have any doubts about embracing biomimicry in your work and life, consult with Kassandra. She will lead you to discover the answers in the way that only the intelligence of nature and the principles of biomimicry can. She is practical, efficient, no-nonsense, deeply committed, expertly skilled, and boundary-pushing. For me, investing in and pursuing biomimicry as a real operational and design application was like pursuing the possibility of the Fibershed as my supply chain model. I knew that biomimicry was the answer to what I wanted to achieve for Kámen Road, our partners, and our customers. Biomimicry goes so far beyond beautiful design. It changes the way you think so you truly innovate by your own definition and values. Our work focused on building a business ecosystem to align with life’s circular design principles. From rethinking sustainable materials and fabrication methods to light weighting my product designs, she makes biomimicry real and doable. That in itself is worth everything and we have made a commitment to continue the work with Kassandra.
