People hire me for:  responsive, cost-effective, full-service visualization and communication

If I didn’t do what I do, I would like to:  be a full-time professional drummer/percussionist and architectural designer

When I’m not working you can find me:  visiting and being with those I love, traveling, hiking, playing music, exploring, researching and planning trips

Favorite words to live by:  “Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.” —Raymond Linquist

Favorite book:  Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

Favorite word:  osmosis

Favorite sound:  the solid, crisp, poppy crack of a well-tuned snare drum
