Mark Twain once remarked "A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something that can be learned in no other way". I have a varied background, and have carried my share of cats.
In the roles I have played throughout my career, I often had the most success when I was acting as a connection between individuals and organizations going through an evolution and experiencing conflict. Often this was due to insufficient resources, or because they did not share a common vision, vocabulary, or values. I have the knowledge, hands on experience, and ability to make connections between seemingly disparate elements, and achieve successful outcomes based on 42 years of producing benchmark results with minimal resources.
