What motivates me:

Fundamentally, my job is to tell a story: to weave together strands of information into a coherent and compelling narrative. But I’m truly motivated by those everyday opportunities that I have to explain why an idea or a company or an individual is special. I relish the challenge of helping people to “get it”—to have that wow moment where the light bulb goes on and they understand something in a way they didn’t just moments earlier.
