How I can help you

Business start-up and operational challenges with an emphasis on the photography and restaurant industries are the primary focus of my mentoring to over 1500 SCORE clients since 2003.

 

After working for United Press as a news photographer, I started a commercial photography studio specializing in editorial style photography for business clients. The studio became a trusted source for photography and the largest commercial studio on the San Francisco peninsula. We built long-standing relationships with our clients, regardless of whether they were a small business or a Fortune 500 company.

 

In 1992, while still operating the photography business, our family purchased a fine dining restaurant on the S.F. Peninsula.  I handled all day-to-day management details and long term planning.  After 11 years of successful operation, we sold the restaurant.  This is the type of hands-on knowledge I can share with you.

 

My past volunteer work as a crisis counselor sharpened my listening skills and trained me to realize there are multiple solutions to all challenges. I try and bring this approach to you my SCORE clients regardless of where you are in your business development.
