"My professional life has always been defined by the successful pivot at the right, precise moment.

Talent is like a muscle--you either have it, or you don't. When you combine talented people with an integral brand of an industry such as Fusion, you create an unstoppable momentum of success. I can honestly say, the very best is yet to come."
