1 - I'm all in on the mission, but the non-values are a hard pass.

2 - My personal 'superpowers' align well with your needs.

A few highlights below...

Public Speaking

I'm a skilled public speaker who has been commissioned to speak in front of executives at national conferences. I'm a TED 2018 Fellow, and my TED Talk from the flagship conference has over 1.5 Million views online and had over 3,000 people in attendance. I'm also the Senator for North Carolina's 39th district, so I'm used to speaking to community and business leaders frequently.
