“I am a firm believer that we are all stewards of the Earth and of each other and to this I have and will always remain true.  I believe that completing every day with intention towards integrity, honesty, compassion, empathy, and the sharing of our personal resources (knowledge and skills) will lead us to becoming better versions of ourselves and allow us to share our wealth (and this is so much more than monetary wealth) to assist everyone towards a more sustainable future.

I am beyond excited to be joining AMS in this new role and working with them to fulfil their vision (which is also a personal vision of mine) of “clean, safe water is a fundamental human right” to be afforded to everyone.  As a steward I will and do live everyday with the intent to assist in making this vision a reality.  I look forward to sharing my skills to support this vision and to work towards making it a reality for all.

I look forward to being part of a team that aspires to “be the change we want to see in the world” (paraphrased from Mahatma Gandhi).  I have been awarded many opportunities in my life that I can never repay to those involved, but I can pay it forward and will continue to do so with the many exciting opportunities that are on the horizon for this company”
