Little Known Fact:
Once upon a time Sandy was an All-American Water Polo player at Stanford.  Now he’s relegated to rec league basketball where he struggles to make it up and down the court.

Client or Business Philosophy:
Keeping an open dialogue and clearly communicating the challenges of a project with clients and business partners upfront leads to successful projects.  This approach keeps all project stakeholders thinking about how to apply unique solutions to projects that always present unique challenges.

Responsiveness and Integrity

Binge watching TV shows of dubious cinematic merit.  See film recommendations (in fairness The Wire has definite cinematic merit).

Special Interests:
Golfing, basketball, hiking & family
