Visit my company website

I am an executive operator and growth strategist for companies in fast-moving markets that need to build and manage a steep growth curve.

I specialize in creating operationally efficient corporate and competitive growth strategies and deconstructing business models and operational structures to optimize strengths, minimize weaknesses, reduce risk, and address uncertainty.

I focus on operations, corporate and competitive strategy, integrated marketing and branding, finance, as well as market development and international partnerships.

As an operator, I quickly solve for inefficiencies. As a growth strategist, I improve value propositions and identify opportunities to lower costs that help position organizations for scalable growth.

I excel at building teams to transform a 'status-quo' mindset into a collaborative accountability-driven culture.

Building organizational health, technical capacity, process improvement, revenue/profit expansion, and capital markets knowledge are hallmarks of my work.

I have been an independent director for public and private companies and work hard to ensure my expertise is used wisely.
