Can read a trail map, a music score, Chaucer, and a balance sheet. 1 part executive, 1 part entrepreneur, 2 parts geek, and 3 parts Dad. Love lime juice on chef salads and Rudy's BBQ sauce on my brisket.Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look for the phone while I'm still talking on it. On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
