What problems do you consistently solve for your clients?  

  • Objective thinking – bringing a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ from the outside, often brings new perspectives to a client 
  • Turning their innate intent and desire into actionable steps 
  • Quantifying their instinct to gauge the magnitude of a problem or opportunity 
  • Turning the chaos into order 

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working?  

  • Writing, I have written and self-published a novel (a really, really interesting and futuristic idea, really, really poorly executed😂).
  • Playing golf, bitten by the bug at a very early age, what can I say 
  • Cooking 
  • Movie after movie after movie then go back to the start and movie again 

What would your personal motto be?  

Never stop learning and changing. 

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:

from my father “I know what I know, talking about it won’t make me smarter, two ears one mouth son – do the math.”
