My 30 years of experience means I’ve seen a lot and I’ve learned a lot. Put my expert knowledge to work for you. How good am I? I’ve been compared to the Mississippi river because I just kept “rolling along” with project changes. I’ve also had authors tell me that divine providence sent me their way. Now that’s a recommendation!
