What’s something people might be surprised to know about you? As a high school senior, I attended basketball camp in West Point, NY under Coach Bobby Knight and his assistant coach Mike Krzyzewski. Though brief, it was a thrilling and memorable experience with many lessons that I’ve carried through life.
What’s your personal motto? Enjoy what you do or change it.
The right solution is one that successfully meets the needs of the client.
