Summary

I believe that innovative solutions are simple and start with asking the right questions, questions that come from a collaborative environment where different perspectives can fuse into novel ideas. Empowering peers is more than  a zero sum game.  A team can elevate itself well beyond the total ability of the individuals if open communication is fostered.  These principals guide me and permeate my work, allowing me, and those with whom I work, to achieve greater results.
