About me

I'm a seasoned sales executive, business manager, leader, and strategist. I'm an expert in corporate development, marketing, customer relations, operational management, business planning, strategic planning, situation assessment, and leadership.

I've worn many hats in my career - line cook, lifeguard, car salesman, sales manager, actor, army officer, attorney, and Director of Corporate Development and Strategy. As a result, I have a unique ability to manage multi-disciplinary projects and to navigate complex challenges. But my actual experience over this past decade has taught me that my professional value boils down to the following:

1 ● The greatest product you can hope to sell is yourself.

2 ● I am a multi-linguist of the business and legal world. I speak fluent attorney, marketer, editor, manager, designer, trainer, salesperson, web-designer and difficult client. Understanding translates into fewer missteps, and missteps cost a fortune. 

3 ● I don't care who gets credit. I just want to win. 

4 ● I have Big Ideas. 

5 ● Lots of people have Big Ideas. It is not the idea, it's the execution that matters. I am a master of execution.

6 ● If my left and right brain were hands, I'd be ambidextrous. 

7 ● I'm the calm one. 

8 ● I run toward fires. 

I love making new professional relationships. Feel free to reach out if you want to talk the law, business, sales, or general car talk.

Specialties: Operational management, creative direction, communications, sales, training and employee development, marketing, writing networking, social media, and legal counseling.
