Personal Information:

I bring projects in on time and on budget, believe in a cooperative management style, and find great pride and satisfaction in talent development and training. My past activities have directly resulted in production increases, cost reductions, development of successful managers and producers, a state-wide marketing campaign involving TV, print and web.

Training is a culture that affects the entire organization.
