I love learning about the world around me and I strive to do things well. I value deep understanding and often ask lots of questions in order to develop it.

I think a lot about what it means to be a good leader, and the enormous impact that leadership has (positive and negative) on organizations and people. I take personal integrity and responsibility very seriously.

I'm very conscious of my community and my environment. I like living in urban settings where I can rely on walking, bicycling, and public transit for my daily commute and errands.
