Listen. Build. Launch. Learn.
Think like an executive. Execute like a frontline manager.
That's my leadership philosophy in a nutshell. Applying my strengths for input, ideation, activation, achievement and learning (my top five StrengthsFinder attributes), I move to whatever ball you throw me, specializing in doing what hasn't been done before: a new product, category, market, operations innovation or even an internal startup. If I haven't done it before, I'll figure it out. I won't let you down.
