Years of living and working in Europe and the Middle East have refined my talent stack. Global experiences have given me binocular vision which informs most of my interactions. I bring a tremendous amount of unconventional experience to most situations. Additionally, years of successes and failures as an entrepreneur have shaped me into an effective business professional. I am family oriented and spend a lot of time with my four children. I coach youth soccer and enjoy helping young soccer players fulfill their athletic dreams. I enjoy motivating, influencing, delegating and consensus building. I am action-oriented and practical. I enjoy environments where results can be seen relatively quickly. I am straightforward, assertive, logical, personable and resourceful. I thrive in self-structured, high-pressured, production-oriented environments.
