I firmly believe in the power of people connecting to improve the world. The ideas that we share when we meet and connect grow and allow us to help each other build extraordinary realities to match our visions and improve the world. This is the goal of my work at Landesa. I have spent two decades fundraising and fueling life changing non-profit missions. In that time I have managed teams, built programs and increased revenue. I have found the greatest joy and success in my career has always come from connecting people and ideas to build new concepts and achieve more than they could set out to do alone. Along the way I have learned much from many failures great and small.
