I believe in...

Solving Problems

All meaningful work is driven through problem-solving. I love a challenge, and I’m at my best when working through a problem.

Asking Questions

Solutions are really just answers to questions. I explore and inquire to reach a higher level of understanding.

Transparent Communication

I’m not abrasive, but I don’t hold my tongue. I offer my opinion, and I communicate transparently, honestly, and effectively.


Essentialism is the pursuit of less to regain control of my choices in order to channel my time, energy, and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter.

Deep Work

Deep Work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task to produce better results in less time.

Effective Solutions

An effective solution is efficient, thoughtful, and productive. I believe in distilling the solution down to its most essential component.

Following Through

When I say I’m going to do something, I do it. I don’t make false promises, and I always do what I say.
