Quote

I took a short consulting contract 'just to see' what it would be like and fell in love with the people here. My team has an incredible focus on growth and a culture of learning. Our tag line is 'while (!perfect) { improve() }!' It’s exciting to be part of something larger than myself with a team to help carry out that vision. I’m still in awe of all the moving parts.
