A Technologist. A Coach. An Entrepreneur. A Leader.

I have a 30+ year Journey where I failed, got fired, faced many, many challenges, and yet have persevered.

And it is through living, and failing, over and over again that I have grown and developed.  

Failing has taught me Compassion.  Perseverance.  Determination.
