Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did.
The following examples are not professional and they were never meant to be. When you work with me you don’t just get a professional skill set. You also get personality, whimsy, and a healthy dose of dorkiness.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Lance is one of the most creative people I know. He's one of my favorite people to 'idea' with. Having known him for years and worked with him in side projects, I've seen him in both personal and professional capacities. In both, he's friendly, sharp, and fun to work with and be around.
He's a constant learner, and cannot do anything in life in half measures - an admirable quality that I've always appreciated in him and wanted to emulate. Any team would be so incredibly fortunate to have him - he'll stretch himself and others, be an integral part of the team culture and energy, and be a positive, driven force to bring together solid marketing, projects, and tools. I'd recommend him to anyone who is looking for a creative, fun, and smart individual to really jump in and run with marketing programs.”
