Why?

"Expert behavior requires an exquisite sensitivity to context and an ability to know what to commit to." 

- Hans Weigand, ACM 2006


I've worked with  top management and in the hands-on trenches to produce great organizational, technical, and product success. I've also experienced what causes projects and companies to fail. I have internalized serious lessons regarding the fundamental necessity of coherence, transparancy, and integrity to durable technical and economic success.
