my works

experience
based on
practice

My relationship with ACS ranges from the very personal to sometimes tangential, perhaps exactly the rapport needed at different stages of my career. The key point being, a relationship with ACS and our members can matter from both a personal and professional point of view when it comes to thriving in a highly dynamic global marketplace. I know ACS, not because I was looking for the Society but because the Society was looking for me (in Jackson, MS of all places!).
