"If you operate from a place of fear or resistance to change, you become blind to the most exciting opportunities and growth. Celebrating the adventure of uncertainty, while staying focused on vision and measurable goals, makes me more productive."
"Problem solving is about identifying a pain point, understanding the variables, and then investigating the feasibility of potential solutions. I’m a problem solver. I like bringing together individuals, technologies, and objectives to create solutions that really work."
"I always ask 'why not?' instead of 'why?' I see a challenge and want to crash in and figure out how to do something; I don't have much patience for non-doers. My instinct is to always take action immediately."
"Moving from idea to implementation is more of an art than a science. When I built SheerID's original verification API, my goal was to build a platform that was secure, reliable, and scalable. As we've gotten feedback from our partners and clients, the scope of SheerID's verification services has continued to evolve and grow. It's rewarding to create technology that solves a real pain point, not only for retailers, but for the consumers who qualify for special offers, too."
"I approach every potential partnership as a learning opportunity. Building mutually-beneficial relationships and bringing new data providers on board is incredibly exciting, but I also learn from the 'no's'. Challenges in the form of rejection and obstacles open our eyes to new possibilities and fuel us to try harder."
