I’m a Creative.
And I’m a Strategic.
What’s that mean? It means I’m an artist who designs visual communications—and I’m a thought leader who specializes in big-picture strategy. I help structure environments where people (and people in teams) can ruminate, collaborate, and innovate, making a positive impact on your organization’s mission.
Create, inspire, and encourage
art, leadership, and engagement.
What sets you apart?
Creative, visual, thoughtful, and articulate—I believe intelligence and compassion feed the persistent drive to help everyone envision “better” and reach their potentials.
How will you make an impact?
When we’re open to new ideas, given time and energy, we can broaden horizons—trying, failing, iterating, reiterating, and creating something astounding from the process.
What about integrity and doing the right thing?
Seeking and expecting the best from each other means building trust and allowing space to be wrong. It means being honest with ourselves and the world about the process and our intentions. By adhering to fairness, justice, and a sense of belonging, we all become part of the whole. Each constituent piece as important as another; the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
My leadership philosophy is encapsulated in this video, produced for Concepts of Strategic Leadership, part of the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership at Point Loma Nazarene University.
Big-picture thinking, envisioning multiple solutions, and picking the best.
Intentional, thoughtful insight: strength in all situations.
Stimulates excellence, transforming the strong into the superb.
Imagination and creativity at work to generate new, actionable ideas.
Constantly curious and absorbing information like a sponge, always prepared for new ideas.
