When you give someone a job, you expect them to follow through. I have no intention of making empty promises. I respect others too much to add fluff to my agenda. We're here to get a job done, so let's do it.

Here are my goals. They are based on feedback I've gained from the community. Don't see something here that matters to you? Send me feedback and let's solve it together!
