Everything I do comes from a single inspiration: to connect people to where they need to go.
I believe story is a powerful form of communication and education is the most empowering force in life.
I am passionate about connecting people, supporting innovation, and advancing new technologies. My desire to enlighten is expressed though my writing, nonprofit advocacy, and innovative problem-solving.
My diverse experience in military, corporate, and government taught me leadership and teamwork. I seek the best ideas from different fields, and I try to realize them through government, academia, and industry collaboration.
My ethos is best described by a quote by philosopher Albert Camus:
We must make our men of action into men of ideals, and our poets into captains of industry.
We must learn to live out our dreams—and to transform them into action.
