In graduate school, I read an H. L. Mencken essay, "Allegro Con Brio," about his early reporting days in Baltimore. The story was shot through with joy and energy and the thrill of discovering what you're meant to do in this world.

I never forgot the story, or the title - an Italian musical term that means to "play with vigor."

As someone who lives and works with speed and spirit, con brio is an apt name for my business. And it's a good description of what you get when we collaborate. I bring passion to projects.


My favorite work is helping people and organizations find and express what makes them special - their personality, value, and contributions. Identity and impact are my jam.
