Elevator pitch

I tend to think about problems as challenges to be solved on a conceptual level, before jumping into the nitty-gritty process of working towards a tangible result. My analytical skills, and the ability to look at things as pieces of a larger puzzle, are of significant value to the teams I join.

Foremost, I am a professional who is known to "speak truth to power". I often challenges ideas, but will defend the collaborative decisions towards my subordinates or more junior team members.

I love helping people grow, and have a strong preference for positions that include collaboration, coaching others, or that focus on improving the day-to-day working life of my colleagues and customers.
