My early roots are still embedded in a red state landscape but my branches now reach out into blue state skies.  I’m a West Point graduate with 20 years in the active duty infantry.  I’ve since worked in Washington, D.C. for the past decade designing national level government reforms, agency and department wide expeditionary planning capabilities, and White House on-boarding for members of the NSC.  I finished my formal education with a PhD in Human Systems and Organizational Development with a special emphasis on how our biological natures contribute to our conscious and nonconscious sense making in everyday complexity.
