I'm an aware optimist. "Aware" because I choose it.
I love improvements, helping to change businesses and cultures and processes and people. I collect diversity, differentiation, and unique experiences. I seek out variety in everything I do. I am nourished by the support of friends and family, with a mind like a sieve for detractors.
I get into things deeply, consuming myself with new ideas, books, and projects as a lifelong learner, because half the fun is that learning experience. I've been extraordinarily luckly and I'm grateful.
