My Philosophy:
We can, but should we?

Philosophy

Always under construction.

Trust

Every idea and transaction proceeds from relationships, and fully functioning relationships are built on trust. Trust is built over time, and can be lost in only seconds. Be worthy of trust, and be willing to trust. In this way, communications are understood as they were originally conveyed, and a team can then enter the flow at will -- supercharging each other towards the tasks at hand. Where trust is not established or worse broken, eddies and dams will impede the flow.

Durability

Fly by night companies, vaporware, nickel-and-diming, death by a thousand cuts -- these apparitions can all be bound with sufficient strategy and planning before making any other move. Haste makes waste -- sometimes massive waste. We'll get to it in Phase 2 -- yet Phase 2 never comes. A series of such compromises often leads to sub-optimal performance. It is often the case that a battle is won or lost before the first shot is ever fired. Plan and build for the long term.

My greatest skill:
I am a deep learner.

Integration

People are made to connect. Technologies are made to connect. Yet some differences can get in the way of progress. Successful integration completes the circuit to power our world of connections.

Optimization

We're all busy, and we're all waiting. What if I could save you just one minute per day? Six hours of your life each year. My gift to you. Extrapolate this idea for all of your customers.

Automation

I believe that novel experiences are the key to slowing down our perception of time. Performing the same, repeated tasks accelerates our perception of time. Automation is quintessential to living a more memorable and fulfilling life.
