Bullseye copy2


I am very analytical and concentrate on the main goal in front of me. I am objective and goal oriented. When working in a team many heads are better than one, therefore team collaborative is imperative. I ensure my team is result oriented and will fallow a project through to success. I am dedicated to the task at hand and will never back down from a challenge.

Team Player

Teamwork is essential when working on a project. It is important for a team to perform together as one solid unit. I take it upon myself to be the integrator and initiator of the group in order to ensure we work as a whole. I encourage the blending of ideas to come up with the best course of action that fits the project's needs. With our combined efforts we are more productive and successful. 


Reliable Professional

It is always my intention to remain reliable and sincere. To be seen as dependable and trustworthy one must prove that he is as such. I first prove this to my team and then my clients. The support of a team is vital. I enjoy working with people who have big ideas, get things done and know how to enjoy their lives. I pride myself on being a loyal and respected team leader. In order to gain respect you must first respect your team and all the voices on it. 

About Me

Throughout my career I have demonstrated that I am an innovative thinker, and an enthusiastic and extremely dedicated individual. Over the years I have developed strong communication skills and have gained a vast amount of experience with speaking to many different types of people. Good relationships are worth keeping and nurturing. As a leader, I am passionate about instilling and teaching positive change and growth in people and in business. I focus my leadership towards solutions and results because I believe taking responsibility and being proactive in any situation is a valuable skill that pays off greatly. I am eager to build connections and deepen relationships with people, which allow me to discern their talents and lead them through mentorship and coaching to succeed as team members and individuals. Above all else I want to prove to my clients and the people around me that I am honest and trustworthy. I am someone that people can depend on and can easily come to. I provide any company with a focused and results-oriented employee who strives for success no matter the task.
