Sonja Williams

Grant will be a great advisor because he's got stealth people skills, razor sharp insight, and can always see the big picture. And of course ... an all round chill guy you want to learn from.

Shane is simply reliable, smart, and gets things done. When I work with him I know I can depend on him. He's also an opportunist that knows ... when and how to execute in the clutch.

Austin is smart, talented, and understands the bigger picture.

He has the skills, background, connections, and wherewithal to go from idea to execution. I'd highly recommend him!
