How I can help you

I'm glad to share my knowledge and experience with SCORE clients who are thinking of starting a business and those who want to improve an existing one. I can provide insights and assistance with some of the key issues clients commonly face.  I can help with for-profit or non-profit planning.  I've been involved in a number of charitable, civic and educational organizations,on which I have held Board positions.  

I focus on planning and implementation based on many years with IBM as a systems engineer and having had project responsibility.  I have experience with the financial aspects of owning and operating a business, too.  Whether pre-start or operational, I can help you understand the challenges and define a workable plan to help solve your problems. .

Throughout the years I've served as adjunct faculty at many schools including University of Hawaii, Johns Hopkins University School of Continuing Studies and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. I live in Daytona Beach, FL and am a member of the Volusia/Flagler Chapter in  Central Florida. My wife and I developed and presented the core workshop “How to Successfully Start Your Own Business" for several years.

I mentor via email and face-to-face.  Feel free to contact me.
