My work is about delivering results and solving problems on behalf of my clients. The ability to build bridges among the people and stakeholders who make projects happen – local, state, and federal officials in the U.S. along with business leaders in the U.S. and overseas – is a required skill.

Nobody gains by chasing random rabbits, only chase what matters. I strive to be direct and identify important issues at every step, so we don’t get bogged down on what doesn’t matter. Keep the important things important.
