"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."
