How I can help you
I have been a SCORE Mentor since 2013. I can help you start, run, and grow your business. I can help you evaluate your business ideas, develop strategic and tactical plans to develop them, and provide you tools and guidance to help you execute those plans. I can also assist on marketing and sales content, business management techniques, and business technologies. Most important, I act as a sounding board for my clients--allowing them to test their ideas and business concepts and challenging them to make them more effective.
My primary business background is as an information systems technical services consulting program manager and managing executive (Regional Vice President). I have managed consulting and software development teams, and had P&L responsibilities for Network Solutions and Oracle Corporation consulting organizations providing IT systems development and mission execution support for clients in the US Intelligence Community and other U.S. Government agencies. I developed and taught project management courses for Network Solutions and Oracle Corporation and have experience as a past entrepreneur, having co-founded and served as CEO for a telecommunications consulting partnership for three years. Prior to my 24-year business career, I served in the U.S. Air Force for 23 years as an Intelligence NCO and Officer, retiring from the Pentagon at the rank of Major.
