Grace's mantra is "Live By Design" -- creatively and strategically, approaching the world with attention to detail and intention towards the bigger picture, solving problems at their roots through a form+function lens. Keenly interested in cognitive neuroscience, she is passionate about driving positive behavior and helping people grow great ideas and great causes (so if you have either, ping her on Twitter at @gracerodriguez!). Grace "Accelerates Design and Marketing Culture" with Culture Pilot, cultivates creative commerce and collaboration as a Board Member of the City of Houston Mayor's Innovation and Technology Advisory Board and C2 Creative, promotes Houston's creative community & innovation ecosystem through COHouston, and fosters "Ideas Worth Sharing" through TEDxHouston. Honored with a Texas Statesman Social Media Award and a Prism Award for producing "Destination Houston," Grace is proudest of her service on the boards of diverse nonprofits, her adventures in fiber arts, and helping grow all of the things that no one knows she has had a hand in. You'll most often find her behind the scenes rather than on the stage, because sometimes, simply making things happen is its own best reward.
Piloting culture. Driving sustainable individual, social, and systemic innovation. Leveling playing fields. Attacking problems at their roots. Empowering people and communities to make change.
Science + Empathy + Creativity can save the world.
Social pointillism. Breeding edges. Creating a global army of problem-solvers. YOU!
Pattern spotting. Improv. Dance. Mimicking.
