The primary focus of my career has been on building and growing organizations – both for-profit and nonprofit – with an emphasis on increasing efficiency and effectiveness through improved business strategies and fostering a spirit of innovation. The projects I have managed are spread throughout the United States, and I have worked with companies throughout Asia and Europe.
My professional strengths are centered on planning and organizing with an emphasis on developing customized strategies to find solutions and achieve goals. Creativity and adaptation, along with tenacity and a positive attitude, have served me well in finding those solutions.
I contribute effectively working independently, as a member of a team, and particularly well in a work environment that combines both. The success I have found also comes from my ability to conduct in-depth research, customer discovery, understand different markets, develop detailed action plans, create lasting relationships, find unique ways to solve problems, and meet deadlines, as well as managing others to do the same.
I seek to mentor and motivate those who ask for assistance, and surround myself with those with more experience to enhance my own abilities and skills.
A Reno, NV native and a diehard Arizona Wildcat, I am an avid outdoorsman and enjoy anything that requires a healthy application of sunscreen. When forced inside, I am also a lover of reading, films, and writing. I live by the values of love, respect, and honor, using them as a guide through all of my personal and professional endeavors.
