So, what’s the secret sauce?
A relentless passion for what I do, a healthy dose of pedantry to make sure it gets done right, some good-natured pragmatism to make it work, and a touch of perfectionism that will not let me rest until I have done the absolutely best work possible under any given circumstances.
No excuses. Just progress.
