What's in a Name?


   Kintsugi is a Japanese art form that uses golden glue to repair broken vessels. The result? 

 A unique work of art.

Kintsugi  art became the inspiration for my company's name.  

Kintsugi is symbolic of who we are as people and how we operate in business.


We are not one dimensional creatures who focus solely on our work. There are many facets of life that contribute to our completeness, our sense of well-being, and well-being is the fuel that helps run the engine we call ourselves.

We, as a people, must also be motivated and exert a level of effort in order to achieve  our goals.  

Those efforts require an expenditure of energy.

How do you prioritize?  

Where do you put your energy?

What problems are you solving?

How do you go about solving those problems?

Do you run out of steam?

Feel exhausted?
