Storyteller, wordsmith, champion of stories worth sharing. My unique outlook on the world makes me an effective project manager. Everything can be broken down based on characters, conflict, and resolution.

I am a student of life. I possess the great gift of objectivism which clearly displays for me "the bigger picture". I can break down any complex topic and simplify it to illustrate the core topics. Messages become simply defined through my pros. My writing talents are secondary to the talent I have to link in to the objective.
