I'm an experienced leader of people, projects, and operations who loves sharing stories, making good things better, and finding the best way forward. At home with my lovely wife and twin sons in Seattle (one of the best cities in the world), where we enjoy movies, music, Macs, and most things nerdy. My rules of thumb:

•Relationships matter most of all.

•Be open to wisdom from unlikely sources.

•If the data exists, find it and use it.

•Keep moving and get out of the way (this is Ape Law).

•Attention must be paid.

•Never give up on untried approaches.

•Stay on target…stay on target…

•When the response isn't proportional to the stimulus, there must be another stimulus.

•Don't fear hard work or the messiness of creative chaos.

•Always work toward elegance in design, language, processes, and solutions.
