    Business Quote:

    “I believe that men are here to grow themselves into the best good that they can be – at least, this is what I want to do.” - John Coltrane


    About me:

    I seek to understand the context of the client’s needs and place it into the larger contextualized picture of the market. My cross-disciplinary experience allows me to see beyond and deliver just that.


    Advice for vendors:

    Seeing the future doesn’t make you a visionary until after the market has validated the vision. Thinking that the future is already here and the company product, sales, and marketing strategy is just misunderstood is one of the biggest fallacies that hold companies back.
