RESUME

 
Personal
strengths​​

I’m driven by curiosity. My favorite questions start with, “How might we…” I love absorbing new knowledge and juxtaposing it with my existing understandings. 

I perform best in creative environments. Nothing energizes me like an unrestrained brainstorming session.

I relish a good challenge, personally or professionally. I’ve biked across the country and run trail ultra-marathons. I’ve started a company and bootstrapped to profitability. I have a special admiration for those who have overcome even higher barriers. 

Most of all, I love people and community! Help me learn more about you as a human being and how I can be of service!
