“Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them” — Holstee Manifesto
From percolating idea to concrete reality; a lofty dream to an accomplished goal; I’m an expert at taking that ethereal nothing and manifesting that substantial something. I love taking on the development of exciting yet unformed ideas. Making it happen by creating clear roadmaps to business solutions and successful group collaborations. I’m inspired by many-layered challenges which are solved by developing team-driven solutions where coworkers achieve beyond their own expectations. I approach management with a focus on education and communication. Creating a work environment where all team members are aware of their value and inspired to contribute.
Whether taking on developing a company, design challenges, or creating large-scale sculptural experiences, I bring my unique ability to see and create the bigger picture through collaboration.
