How I can help you

I can help you start a business or improve your existing one.  

As a real estate broker, management consultant, entrepreneur, government official, and non-profit executive, I have gained broad experience that can help you in the areas of strategic planning, operations, marketing, management, and finance.  I thoroughly enjoy being a SCORE Mentor and would welcome the opportunity to help you create and grow your business.

It is only fair to tell you what you should expect when working with me:  

  • I will listen to your plans and ideas.
  • I'll ask questions to make sure I understand what you are saying; I'll also ask questions (maybe some tough ones) to be sure we both have good insight into what is or isn't going to work.
  • I'll ask you to do homework between our sessions and I will expect you to do it.
  • I will tell you the truth and expect the same of you even if that is occasionally a little uncomfortable.
  • I will keep everything I hear in confidence.
  • I will look for other Mentors/experts when appropriate to supplement my own experience.
  • I will be your champion and fan club.

In addition to being a SCORE Mentor, I am the Chair of the Las Cruces SCORE Chapter.  I am also a CASA Volunteer where I work as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for children in foster care.  

During my personal time, my wife and I enjoy riding our Harley and spending time with our family including 7 grandchildren.  I also enjoy photography and writing and have 3 books available on Amazon.
