My primary goal is to find an employment opportunity that allows me to use my creative intelligence. I have an unique background and perspective that helps me bring insight to difficult challenges and complex tasks. My biggest strength is my ability to synthesize disparate groups of information to create a clear portrait of the entire situation. Since I am often able to visualize the big picture, I can quickly prioritize a variety of objectives in order to complete them in an effective and efficient manner.

I am most interested in finding the right fit with the right company. I am most successful when provided a broad goal and given total autonomy to complete it. I do not do well in rigidly confined positions where creativity and ambition are treated as weaknesses. The right company will be progressive, open, and competitive. The right position will be flexible, demanding, and evolving.
