On Working at IA
I love working with a company in which I can help others experience more productive and satisfying work lives — and enjoy working with great colleagues while doing it.
More About Me
As an avid sailor, I fulfilled a lifelong dream in 2006 by sailing my own 35' sailboat from San Francisco to Hawaii. I enjoy playing jazz trombone; always studying to get better at it. Fly fishing and hiking in the wilderness are great sources of inspiration and peace.

What I Care About
I care most about truth telling, respect and kindness for people, and protection of our natural environment. I have three children, and I want each of them to be true to themselves and to others, and to be stewards of the earth for their children. We have only one planet and we all have to share it.
