Personal Statement:
I truly enjoy the challenge of navigating the unknown. My greatest strength is the ability to "cognize" the whole picture from multiple perspectives which gives me the capacity to distinguish details that were previously unforeseen. As a team player, I contribute insight, innovation, integration and independence to daily activities. As a leader, I am motivated by truth, passion, commitment and quality. I have a strong desire to work with talented people and emerging technologies to evolve old paradigms of knowledge into new forms of value.
