Opening Remarks….

Welcome!

I  am a builder and a connector – I love to build businesses that drive specific outcomes – In other words, if you need something built from the ground up, I’m a safe bet and have a track record to prove it.  I love connecting and helping others, especially when it makes an impact, or changes someones life path leading them to happiness and fulfillment.  How can I help you?  Send me a note.

I also enjoy strategy, public speaking and writing.  For a living, I help corporations execute digital transformation strategies – ultimately making them a reality.  I am inspired when teams can work together to find new technology-driven ways for consumers to interact with a brand.  Brand is powerful and beautiful.

Having a creativity first mindset, I often lead and define new approaches that transform businesses, products and processes.  What does that mean?  I help my customers pivot into being new-world digital leaders.  

Creativity drives inspiration, passionate teams and success.

A resume writer once told me I am an “Innovation catalyst who looks at the world through a creative lens. Entrepreneurial, focused, and thinks across boundaries”. That sounded good, so Im sticking with that.  

“Digital Mind, with an Analog Soul”, I like to say.  

I will always be a creator and hope to be an Inspirer of people to achieve the impossible.
