"Who We Are" is a bit of a misnomer. Really should be "Who I Am". My team is me and whomever I need to pull into work on a specific job or jobsRather than growing and aggressively pursuing enouh work to support a team, I've found it better to take on the work I enjopy and can generally handle alone and on occassion bring in the right person when lack of bandwidth and/or need for additional expertise dictates. See Pro Management Co for some of these individuals. With that in mind, here's me!
