I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. My parents taught me the importance of supporting your community, being kind, helping others, and that hard work pays off. Fortunately, I held onto that guidance as I've conducted business across the world. I've met and learned from some amazing people. I've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. All of these experiences have made me a better man ... and a better business person.
I am an entrepreneur and business leader. I have an MBA with numerous years of cross-functional experience. My functional experience includes: Marketing, Corporate Strategy, Sales, Leadership Development, Operations, and Organizational Development.
I've held positions within small businesses, large global organizations, and on the Board of Directors of a Non-Profit.
I've conducted consulting engagements for startups, farmers across Panama, entrepreneurs in Guatemala, and multi-billion dollar organizations in the US, LATAM, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Russia, China, and Australia.
