What next...
...think, think, think, do, do, do & grow, grow, grow. Yup, I'm a grown up, but why stop there? I've got enough experience to hit the ground running, but I'm looking to stretch my legs in new directions coming available in emerging arenas. I'd like to join forces with a close group of open-minded, and yes, maybe a bit weird, but down-to-earth people, and work in a hands on capacity to generate smart ideas that really mean business.
