“I love that at Purple we believe that strategy is about forcing a clear choice. Doing nothing or pleasing everyone is not an option.”
“I’m fascinated by the ways ideas spread. The most powerful ones can unite or divide us. They can drive positive change or create huge problems. Our client’s voices can be powerful, and we have a unique opportunity to help them shape the world through the ideas they share.”
“I try to live by a simple motto: Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
“Riding horses is a tremendous source of inspiration for my work. With horses, you learn how to listen and change your approach until you find a way of communicating that works.”
