What does “listen. think. deliver.” mean to you? To me, this is the three-step process that’s critical for success. Listening enables us to understand what our clients are looking for and achieve results despite budget and time constraints. Thinking is the next step, in which we must work collaboratively to create the best solutions that meet and exceed client expectations. Lastly, we must deliver successfully through smart planning, effective communication, careful risk management, smart resource engagement and strong project closure.

What’s something you enjoy doing on your day off? Spending time with my family, doing outdoor activities, baking and grilling.  

What’s your personal motto? He who has a why can endure any how.
