If you are reading this, I have probably piqued your interest from one directon or another. My aim is to be as civilized as possible and I am grateful for your patience.

I don't care who is right. I care what is right. Ethics require courage. Boldness requires ego. Nothing is solved in moments. Time makes fools of us all. In the meantime, I am happy to be passionately wrong because I'm always Socratic. I always want to understand all angles of failure and success.

I am on a continuous journey of learning and service. I strongly believe in agility. I am an evolving Stoic, motivated to be anti-fragile under conditions of dislocating change.
