Hello. I’m Jan, and I want to introduce myself.
Always Be Connecting is my motto. I’m a natural connector, and always look for opportunities to connect people in my network with other good people. I welcome invitations to connect and followers. I keep myself up-to-date on the latest trends, best practices, industry experts, thought leaders and influencers, and keep my clients up-to-date.
Integrity is high on my list of values, and I intend to be reliable and responsible towards other people. I usually do what I say I will do. I practice what I preach, and walk the talk.
Beyond business, I’ve lived and traveled throughout Europe and Asia, and sailed the Caribbean in our 41’ Lord Nelson sailboat. I love puzzles, creative problem-solving and ahead-of-the-curve people.
To shift from my intense technology-based work, I paint watercolors, and draw and sketch cityscapes, primarily of Manhattan and Italy. I enjoy time at my Manhattan office, at our home in the Hudson Valley and living on our boat in Stamford, CT.
