Hello All: You can find me on through these various online channels:

My professional passions are for technology, marketing and business management. Since 1990 I have been a business leader, creative producer and information technology professional. Sharing real world experiences feeds my creative juices so I spend time speaking at various academic and industry events when my work schedule allows.
Having revenue driving positions is a part of my career history but educating clients with integrity is what really allows you to have successful metrics.
Acting as an interpreter between the creative and strategic worlds I have had extensive experience as a creative producer for live events, video, web, print and digital campaigns. This has also given me many skills to take into my non-profit work. As technology has evolved I have had the fun of including social, mobile and app design to that list of skills.
I am a certified Enterprise Content Management practitioner with years of hands on document management systems design & implementation under my belt. Since 2006 I have used Microsoft SharePoint as my primary tool of choice for these projects and business process improvement.
My motto is: Enthusiasm is a Management Principle. It can’t be faked and can make a decisive difference in leadership skills, achieving goals and turning a vision into an operational reality.
