Describe what you'll bring to a nonprofit board : I love a challenge and am a creative problem solver. Having served in multiple educational and technology environments (K12, Technical College, and University) I could bring this knowledge and my skills to help your organization tackle challenges. Technology is changing very rapidly and we need to think of new ways to be nimble in our response to this landscape. I have a passion for helping people improve their lives through learning.

Describe what you'll bring to a nonprofit board: Think of me as your friendly neighborhood fifth columnist. I come from the world of innovation strategy and marketing, with over two decades of various board experience, making me slightly choosy as to where I am willing to spend my time. In terms of functional skill sets, while my macro focus is as above, I tend to approach things with a very structured view of project management frameworks, guided by metrics, and with the understanding that cultural adoption is the primary foundation on which success might be achieved. I tend to focus on local first, and this is exciting to me, as my wife and I are relatively new to the area. I also prefer to work with non-profits that either have a 5 star Charity Navigator rating, are aiming for one, or would model those behaviors even if the organization is too small (currently) to qualify. The other organizations I would prefer to work with would be ones in crisis transition, where my impact would be measured by taking a shambles and turning it into a paragon. I tend to be less diplomatic than most, and very hands-on in my guidance, with zero tolerance for malfeasance and a marked impatience with incompetence. If your organization is slowly plodding, and does things the same way every day, I am likely not an ideal draftee. On the other hand, if you are looking for someone to jump in, immediately impact the organization, and focus on innovative growth, I might just be your guy.
