How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I am not a passive observer, and get intimately involved and expect to add value; I work best with people who can set goals and execute against them, and who communicate well and can adapt and pivot as required in order to achieve or reset goals based on feedback. I'm metrics focused, but do not need to have every detail known in order to provide guidance.
