Goal Oriented Leader

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.

Focused Problem Solver

I pursue assignments with passion and perseverance, laser-focused until I achieve the desired outcome. I enjoy unique tasks and am not afraid of a challenge, because even if I do not know the answer I see it as an opportunity to learn something new. I am always eager to discover something different and am constantly evolving so that I may grow and develop new skills.


Trustworthy Professional

I believe honesty is the single most important attribute in every relationship; business and personal. In a noble manner I do what it takes to succeed as long as it is honest, ethical, moral, and legal. Approaching all situations with a fair and understanding viewpoint is a must. I am someone with a high moral standard. It is important that I show everyone I come into contact with the same level of sincerity and appreciation.

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. Being a compassionate and good-natured individual, it is my intention for people to always see me as an approachable and friendly gentleman. I strive to be courteous and kind to everyone. I can guarantee that I show the same care and interest in every aspect of life. I enjoy the outdoors; from construction trenches knee deep in seawater, to refineries with oil filled tanks and grease laden equipment, I can still be at home. I can direct and manage a crew, and consult to provide a solution to close the sale. I will never ask anyone to do something that I wouldn't do myself. This is what I do for fun, even though many would think it is work.
