For over 30 years I have been involved with the development and implementation of marketing and technology solutions for businesses and organizations throughout the United States. I am a business developer, marketing contractor/consultant and a media producer of print, photographic, graphic, audio, video, film and Internet technologies.

Over the past two and a half decades I have had many opportunities to observe and experience a full spectrum of accomplishment and disappointment. Both, I consider to be invaluable. These experiences and their resulting outcomes have served me to develop an asset base of skills, insights and perspectives that are beneficial for businesses or organizations that wish to engage my services.

My primary interest lies in managing processes and building teams that identify and find marketing and technology based solutions for businesses and organizations, and to do it with empathy, expertise and good humor.
