I bring people together and solve problems. I figure out abstract, complex challenges, and make them simple.
I believe that people are power. I believe that our communities need more of our time and energy.
I believe technology is a good thing, that we can choose to make a GREAT thing. I believe we can use it to make our lives better, and give people more time to focus on the people and things that are truly important.
I believe that diversity is more than a buzzword – it’s a responsibility.
So what do I do?
I share stories about power of diversity.
I promote and question the principles of leadership.
I share career guidance and coaching.
And finally, I offer perspective on the implications, benefits, and risks of technology adoption in business, and within communities.
Humanity through technology, leadership and diversity.
