Something about me:
"In my life I have taught people how to ride motorcycles, scuba diving, and sailing.  I have lived in many countries, and coached and mentored many professionals and friends."

The best advice I’ve received…
"The next piece of advice.  Or perhaps based on my recent history it would be "Never give up, never surrender."

What can I contribute as a Mentor?
"I can share my years of experience and perspective, and I will support my mentees in finding the path that works for them."

Preferences and availability:
I am willing to mentor 5 young professionals or students on weekdays or weekends once a month, remotely or in person. However, the frequency and length of mentoring sessions will be an agreement between Mentor and Mentee.
