"Very few people and organizations know why they do what they do." -Simon Sinek

We have the opportunity to be the stewards of life on Earth. People are inspiring, ingenious, innovative, and caring. When we come together under a shared purpose, it's incredible what we can accomplish. And that's why I do what I do.

I work at Gartner to help find the story of a brighter future. For the last several years, Gartner has enabled me with unique exposure to market needs and org strategy. I provided insight to department managers, CIO's, CMO's and CEO's on on a daily basis. Today I support Gartner's Global Talent lab, where we find and develop the next generation of talent - people who are positioned to shape the future.

Outside of work, I enthusiastically follow the environmental, space, energy, and transportation markets.
