Temple University Innovation/Entrepreneurship Institute mentor.

Previously, for 15 years, I was the President, COO & Co-founder of a Software & Services firm serving fortune 500 clients nationally. I was the technology & marketing partner responsible for developing innovative state-of-the-art products & services, as well as creative marketing strategies to brand, promote & distinguish our firm in the marketplace. Our success resulted in our sale of the company to a billion dollar New York Stock Exchange Company. Due to our success, I was invited to attend the Harvard  Company Management Program for successful entrepreneurs, which I did, in addition to my Bachelor & Master degrees. As an investor/consultant I also participated with a medical device company to assist them with their FDA approvals & clinical trials. My forte is the start-up business plan, funding, marketing tools, social media & effective development of relevant products & services. I enjoy the consultative process of coaching, mentoring & motivating others.
