Like most successful business persons, our career paths are long, circuitous and a bit quirky. Opportunities excite us, so we've taken chances—we've failed at a few, and succeeded at many others.
As a result, we're definitely not boring.
And we have a world of experiences and skills that can benefit your organization.
