On Working at IA
For me, IA has provided a challenging and supportive environment in which to pursue my potential, both personally and professionally. I feel 100% valued for who I am, and what I have to bring to colleagues and customers. I can always trust my colleagues to tell me the truth as they see it, in my judgment, there is nothing more valuable.
More About Me
I am an epicurean type who loves to dabble in creative ventures, such as concert production and jewelry-making. By engaging in creative projects, I am able to be more effective at the problem-solving aspects of business.

What I Care About
Living up to my own potential as a human being, making a significant contribution to help create peace on a planet that is plagued by war; and finding ways that I can contribute to save this place we live on called Earth, which by the way is the only place that is truly designed for human life.
