I can also help if you have an idea but don't know where to start.

I am excited to use my skills to help you generate your next product,  experience, or personal project.


"Vision and mission work is not easy. But you understood your audience really well and gave them a chance to respond and interact with you on their terms. You understood that they needed to process the challenge at hand and put their own spin on it. Your visual aids were well-planned and aided the discussion journey. The afternoon’s discussion benefited from the momentum you created."

—Bob Gay, Senior VP & COO, American Public University System; Safe & Sound Schools Board Member, Baltimore, MD
