Seasoned GenX Leader Capable of Leveraging the Technically Savvy GenY Knowledge Worker

Nice. Simple. Tweet-able. Tagged. Contextual. To the Point.

My personal brand is a clear indicator of both who I am and who I wish to mentor towards making an organizational shift leveraging the values of Enterprise 2.0, Agile Development, Transparency and Accountability, Collaboration and Engagement, and providing a cultural shift both within your organization and across your customer base.
