How I can help you
I can help you with project management, strategic planning, sales, marketing, mergers and acquisitions, new venture analysis, contracts, and general management. I have diverse experience as a counselor, consultant, and mentor.
As a senior executive with more than 20 years experience in the aerospace industry, my diversified experience includes negotiating long-term agreements as well as international experience in Europe, China, and other countries in the middle/far east. I also managed operations in Washington, D.C.
For Durham Tech's "Fast Entrepreneur" course, I mentored students toward development of strong business plans. I am a past chairman of Musical Empowerment, providing free music lessons to low-income children from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro community.
I am a past Mentor in Residence at the University of North Carolina's Y CUBE (Creating University Born Entrepreneurs), providing guidance to the university's social start-up businesses from concept definition through financial analysis/pro forma development, and preparation of business plans, grant/funding proposals, and creation of long-range sustainable corporate entities. I also serve on the board of Sister Cities San Ramon Nicaragua, a non-profit focused on improving the education and living facilities in a small city in Nicaragua. I continue to mentor several SCORE clients with projects ranging from cancer radiation therapy in under-developed countries to various food products.
