Thank you for visiting my website. I developed this site as a means of introducing myself and sharing my background and experiences.

I can best describe myself as focused and determined, with a “Put me in Coach” attitude. I cultivate relationships built on respect, loyalty, and trust. My easy-going sense of humor has been a defining style to bring out the best in everyone, instill pride, and rally them to make themselves the best they can be.
