I grew up playing in the waters of Lake Washington, began my passion for photography at age 9 and my passion for business at age 10, studied marketing at the Kenneth W. Monfort College of Business in Colorado, and am currently the National Microsoft Marketing Manager for a Seattle-based technology and management consulting firm. I have many hobbies and interests, ranging from cigars to efficiency planning. I believe in seizing great opportunities as soon as they arise and leaving bad opportunities as soon as they are realized. I love to solve problems, but can't find a way to completely annex them. If a challenge is rewarding, you'll find me there.
