About Me

On a personal level, an important part of my credentials are my values which have their own web page on this site. As you'll learn, I am a very open and confident person and enjoy intelligent discussions on all sorts of topics. The first Saturday of every month you'll usually find me talking about life, consciousness, and more at the Holy Cow Yoga Center Sutra Sangha talk. I enjoy reading for self-improvement and learning to see the world from different viewpoints and in different ways.

Staying healthy is very important to me so I bike, swim, practice yoga, and meditate to stay fit and mentally refreshed. I love being outdoors either at the beach or in the woods. I have been a vegetarian for 4 years and enjoy cooking. I've discovered that I've got some skills in this area too and have created many new recipes from scratch. Often with some unique combination of ingredients.

Another one of my passions is writing. I've written 3 complete movie screenplays and have several others in progress. I've written well over 300 poems and am currently working on my first book. Writing is a great creative outlet for me and it is an amazing process to tune into something and have the words flow.

Traveling is another passion of mine. After graduate school, I spent two months in Europe riding the Eurorail visiting friends and going off on solo adventures. I visited Finland, Germany, Turkey, France, Italy, and Switzerland. Through the United States I've driven through and visited 46 states. Most of this was done in my Honda Civic that I bought new in 1993. I do almost all of my own car maintenance.

Spending time with Family and Friends is also important to me. But with everyone living all over the country I don't get to visit as often as I would like.

A Level 5 Leader is a person who focuses on the team, on the project, not on their potential gains from taking on a leadership role. Someone who puts the project, the team, before themselves. These types of leaders produce the best results not only in terms of output, but in terms of team performance and employee job satisfaction.
