Summary
I am a Project Management Professional (PMP) with a passionate combination of creativity and analytical goal-oriented action. "Alas for those that never sing, but die with all of their music still inside of them." Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. said that. This thought motivated me to conquer my fears and release an album of original music while I was pursuing my career in aerospace engineering. Now I love to pursue and deliver innovative projects for myself and for others. What "music" is still inside of you that needs to be heard, seen, and valued by others?
What is keeping me up at night
Thinking about all of the fun, exciting, and impactful things I could do--and need to do--with the limited amount of time that I have.
