About Me

My professional elevator pitch...

I build great teams that make great products. In that order. That's it. Seems simple enough, you might even make it fit on a bumper sticker, but easy it is not.

My personal elevator pitch...

I don't know who I want to be when I grow up, and I am 100% ok with that. I started out studying music as a child, and until the age of 20, thought that would be my life. I've spent the last 20+ years working in the technology field, despite having had all 3 technology classes in my life, and was bored to tears in all of them.

Having a plan is overrated. Instead, have ideas. Plans are things you try to stick to, but ideas are easily changeable and interchangeable. You have plans, but ideas have you.
