Start Date: July 2018

Brief overview of what you do: In a small company, everyone has lots of jobs and roles. At the core, my goal is to keep the train on the tracks and help pave the way for the future. I also act as our CFO and HR director. It’s a good thing I like to wear hats!

What brought you to Intent: The short answer is Kelly Yale! Following a career as a U.S. diplomat helping American companies compete in international markets, the lure of being part of a small, nimble and vibrant tech company was utterly compelling. I’ve watched over the years as Kelly, my supreme compatriot for more than two decades, expertly forged Motivator into a highly performing company. When she proposed the idea of joining forces in this incredible venture, too many stars aligned for it not to make sense. And it certainly does!

What you like most about working at Intent: I love our team and its esprit de corps. In addition to being exceptionally intelligent, talented and passionately dedicated to our mission, there’s nothing more our team loves than coming up with amazing ideas to better serve our clients.

Book you’ve read over and over again: Can’t list just one! In Search of Lost Time, The Grapes of Wrath, Our Lady of the Flowers — and most any poem by Baudelaire, Verlaine or Rimbaud.

A bit about your family: My family is my raison d’être. After many years of living overseas, I’m ecstatic to live in the same state as my family.  I also couldn’t fail to mention my faithful feline friend, Basil – affectionately known as Mr. Rambo. He’s followed me from the Tropic of Capricorn to the South China Sea – and beyond. He’s my heart.
