Social Media Connections
Highly focused on relationships, I have built strong connections with executives, vendor partners, and teams that have come from dozens of countries with varied backgrounds and skills. I use social media and this website to maintain and grow those relationships, connections that make life matter. Please connect with me on social media and take a few minutes to visit my blog.

Journey with me in writing as I contemplate leadership, technology, food, and life in my personal blog. Here are some recent posts.
Competence is becoming overrated as a hiring driving force. We live in a VUCA business environment — volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous — and technology has allowed executives to open up revenue streams they never thought possible. We don’t necessarily need the most competent financial guy in history; we need a financial guy who can switch between different approaches as it’s called for.
People want to feel needed and loved all the time, and not simply when you want their help or need something. And when I say people, I definitely include myself. But how do you do this? Here are a few tips.
Negativity reduces context. That’s a good reason to consider changes when you’re feeling good about life or work . It will give you more perspective.
I think we’ll continue to see more approaches around data — look at a model like Zillow and the amount of data they crunch — but my hope is that this idea of “big data” fades into buzzword obscurity and we focus on the right things at the CIO level. We should be connecting stakeholders and moving towards information-based analytics.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
