"People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it." - George Bernard Shaw I'm a creative, lively, optimistic kinda guy fascinated by the intersection of science & technology, business, and public policy. Obsessed with innovation and doing things differently. Key strengths include (but not limited to): Sales, marketing, idea-crafting, creative problem solving, team coordination, strategy, and mediation. I have a knack for energizing others. Allergic to 9-to-5's, cubicles, bureaucracy, and "because that's just how it's done"ism. Available for consultation. I live to share good ideas, empower individuals, and enable solution-oriented projects. The best way to leverage my skills is to hit me up, catch me up, and let me ask questions. Together we're already changing the world.
I'm spreading the Dr. Bronner's Magic and mission to the beautiful people of Maryland and DC!
Sharing the love of Runa guayusa tea with the world! With a smooth clean taste, twice the antioxidants of green tea, and as much caffeine as a cup of coffee (with a way more clear-headed, natural buzz), what's not to love?!
Whatever the industry. Whatever the problem. I can help. I don't need to have pre-existing knowledge of your issue or expertise in your field. My powers are derived from asking the right questions and helping you separate the wheat from the chaff. Rarely is an important business or organizational decision limited to the surface. They always connect to something deeper about your identify, your values, your objectives. I look at the whole picture, and in helping you solve your problem I help you better understand yourself.

Managed a state campaign to enact comprehensive legislation protecting medical patients' access to doctor recommended cannabis. Held regular public meetings, coordinated a core group of over 12 active volunteers, crafted messaging, organized citizen lobbying campaigns, and did an obscene amount of legwork. I dedicated my whole life to this one for awhile. Great progress was made, and continues to be made, on this non-controversial, bipartisan issue in Maryland.
Updated and maintained a private database of all Federal and State level elected officials in the United States, as well as committees, subcommittees, and (federal) staffers. Proved my attention to detail, patience, and ability to harass every office in Congress at least 3 times a year.
