Inside The Mind Of...

  • What does "A Brighter Way" mean to you? A brighter way has a two-fold meaning for me. It means "smarter," but with an emphasis on integrity.
  • Describe your work style. I won't let it drop through the cracks.
  • What line of The Rea Way describes you the best? Maintain integrity in all you do.

Just For Fun:

  • What profession would you choose if you didn't go into IT? General contracting
  • What is the number one reason you would hire you? Because I can trust me to follow through.
  • What is your most prized possession? Possessions are just possessions. Relationships are of much greater value.
I'm a no-frills optimist who plans for the worst, then am thrilled when it turns out better.
