Personal Interests

Personal Philosophy

Growing up on a farm I was taught never to do things halfway. I feel that my coworkers and clients deserve 100% of my best effort, and I am dedicated to giving that 100% every day. Failures and mistakes are inevitable in life but knowing that you gave it your all and left nothing on the table makes it easier to dust yourself off and keep pressing forward.
