• Senior leader with such major companies as Grand Circle Travel, DSL.net, OxforHealth Plans and MCI Telecommunications as well as two professional hockey teams.

I’ve worked in the studio and on the road with such name artists as The Rolling Stones, Al Green, The Moody Blues, Tom Jones, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton, Engelbert Humperdinck, erroll Garner and many other recording acts. I know from working in the studio the authenticity it takes to perform at your best and have applied my roles in the success of creating chart-topping recordings to Career Coaching, Executive Coaching and Personal and Corporate Branding.
