About Me

I am a lover and a fighter. I am determined, some say stubborn. I have few pet peeves.

 

I like people. Almost all people. I am a romantic with a cynic streak.
I get most people. Most people get me… for a while. I am perpetually going through personal transformation.
I love ice-cream for breakfast but I’ve given that up to lose a few pounds. I have over-active tear ducts. No… um… I’m not really sobbing when I sniffle at every movie. It’s the simple things that get me; a genuine smile, a hot shower, a loved one’s warm embrace.

 

I am a dreamer, an eternal optimist with a realist strain. I am pro-humanity, and pro-compassion. I will help you if you ask. I am impatient but I’m working on that… somewhat. I am a poor planner but a master strategist. I am a scientist until crazy creativity bursts forth and breaks me away from my logical musings. I am a vegetarian when I’m not being carnivorous. I am a talker but prefer to listen… really. I can be graceful but I’m often a klutz. I try to live in the moment and have few regrets. I have a fear of failure. I am getting over it.

 

I always press zero when I get phone recordings just so I can skip straight to the live person on the other end. I hate cheaters, except when they are really gorgeous or charming or both. Also if they are smart or funny or fun. Then I forget I hate them for a little while. I find it hard to hate.

 

I love reading. I love all kinds of intellectual stimulation and seek the thrill relentlessly even if it means getting into philosophical, political and religious arguments I really can’t win. I love to win.

 

I believe in God, even if we have our occasional falling outs. I’ve had my parade rained on, more often than I’d like. I’m always certain there’ll be more parades. So far my optimism has not been misplaced.

 

I love to live, live to love and live a life worth living!

          GaryVee


          Affectionately known as GaryVee, Vaynerchuk is hands-down one of the most brilliant forces on the internet. And he has taught me a lot of what I know today.

          It’s hard to keep up with all he is doing as an entrepreneur, investor, speaker, internet personality and CEO of VaynerMedia. You may not know he was an early investor in Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Venmo, Uber and countless other companies that have since been acquired, moved or merged.

          What amazes me is his intransigent vision and insurmountable energy… 12 years after our first encounter he is still going strong. I am fortunate to have had him as an advisor early in my career.

          For me he epitomizes how to change the world.
