About Malcolm Gladwell would most probably characterize me as a "connector." I would say that I am best known to those around me as a salesman. I have spent a lifetime "selling" innovative ideas in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. The best definition of a salesman I can give is that of a harbinger of what is honest, new and exciting whether it be to students in a classroom or professionals in the field. My personal objectives include inspiring a new generation of students, entrepreneurs and social activists to make a difference in their fields by being other-directed members of society built on justice and mutual respect.
