What do you love about your job?

My favorite part about my job is being able to articulate not only what the cloud is, but how to conceptualize its possibilities and make it a tangible value for partners. 

What do you like about working with TBI?

TBI’s culture is collaborative. Everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to the mission.  It’s a very impressive engine of opportunity!

Favorite Quote: 

“I once complained I had no shoes, till I met a man with no feet…”

What is a key tidbit you give to others? 

There’s a Zen philosophy which states, “ Everything you ever wanted to become you already are.” Live by this and just go for it. Stop drifting in the future of “if” and “when,” and focus on the single point of now. You are limitless.

Favorite vacation/getaway destination? 

Definitely Hawaii, it’s a great place to explore, but I’d settle for San Diego in a heartbeat!  

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

Omnilingualism, so I could communicate fluently in any language.
