Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. Steve Jobs
Enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness where we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention. Deepak Chopra
I'm always interested in talking about new projects and opportunities. Feel free to reach out if you've got something in the works and want to join forces. I can be reached by email, phone, smoke signals, messenger pigeons, and sky-writing. Although, I prefer the first method.
