About



I eat, sleep and breathe leadership.

When I'm not leading somebody or something somewhere, I like staying in my pajamas all day and riding my cruiser bicycle, although I usually don't do both at the same time.

Swinging on my back patio swing watching the rain fall with a cup of coffee or tea in hand is one of my favorite things, ever. 

I'm an INFJ. If you're one too you know exactly why it was important to me to tell you that.
