  3. Maximize their vision and move them towards ultimate success

My Personal Summary:
I’m curious, passionate and creative. I value clear communication, transparency and respect for others. I like people. I enjoy photography — capturing the beauty around me. I’m a multi-instrumental musician  — always seeking to express feeling. I am a man of the sea; a sailor. I’ve done a lot of sailboat racing and enjoyed competition at various levels — from low-key races with friends to leading my team at the Melges 24 world championships. I’ve cruised the waters of Western Washington and British Columbia and crossed oceans in my Tartan 37 — paying for my tropical adventures with deep ocean storms and knockdowns on the way back home. I’ve traveled quite a bit for both business and pleasure and have many more destinations in mind.
