How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'm looking for honesty, accountability, and the grit to get through things together.

As an Advisor

I give direct but compassionate feedback and will always bring the best of my experience to our conversations. As an active listener, one of my skills is listening to what you need and providing insight into your motivations – combined with my expertise in prioritizing the options and selecting the optimal path forward given a variety of external factors.
