I am an Executive leader with over 40 years’ experience committed to supporting your business vision.  I can help you, as I have helped others, by centering on performance and efficiency through strategic financial analysis and developing business and cash management solutions that capitalize competitive advantage.  I have specialized in establishing alliances to deliver defined goals.  I have worked at both the Chief Financial and Chief Operating levels in large, small, and not-for-profit companies and have had two companies of my own.  Startups and turnarounds are a particular passion as is working with committed and dedicated entrepreneurs.

I currently provide volunteer support for the Smithsonian Institution as well as my work with SCORE entrepreneur clients.
