About Me
I’m an entrepreneur, adviser, board director, photographer, and a foodie. I don’t take myself seriously but I do for my work…I also like coffee – a lot. If I could have four clones of myself with wireless, real-time synchronization of memories and twelve extra hours in a day, I may just get around to all the big things I’d like to accomplish in life and wouldn’t require so much consumption of caffeinated products.
My Manifesto
Collaboration and group dynamics; critical and higher order thinking; strategic and tactical alignment; disparate points of views from broad and deep experiences; gut feelings and cultural passion; and aesthetic designs and personal tastes, all play a role in how we approach a problem, industry, business or our own personal development. I believe that any given enterprise is an art that could be transformed into a masterpiece.
