How I can help you

I am blessed to have had two rewarding careers, one in the US Navy and a second in the private sector with a small publicly traded technology company. I have served at various levels of military/company leadership throughout my career and understand many of the challenges small companies face today. I look forward to opportunities where I can share my experiences and expertise with people who are working in small and start-up companies. My objective is to help them and their companies become increasingly more successful in growing their businesses.

I can specifically help business leaders with strategic and business planning, technology product development, administration, process documentation and improvement, quality control, human resources, advising and oversight, and customer focus.

Presently I am advising two non-profit organizations and mentoring small companies as part of the USC Upstate Greenhouse program.
