I am an operations and strategic business development executive that drives growth and greatly improves outcomes in organizations.
My career has progressed quickly since I completed active duty service in the Navy. I’ve rapidly trans-versed the project management spectrum, starting off managing project acquisitions for the Navy, progressing to managing large worldwide programs involving hundreds of personnel, dozens of worksites, and too many vendors and subcontractors to count, to managing full business portfolios crossing multiple business lines.
From there, I’ve been working in the executive ranks, quickly growing a struggling medium sized company into an industry force with strong margins. I then moved into a chief strategist role of a corporate conglomerate to drive top and bottom line growth across the enterprise, and pave the way for medium and long term success. Currently I am managing a large part of the modernization and integration of 10 different major government applications into a single system.
I am originally from Michigan, and I currently living in the Washington DC area by way of Italy.
I’m the guy that can make things happen quickly. I like challenges and taking on complex (wicked) problems; developing and implementing elegant, executable solutions that satisfy all stakeholders.
I work by building a strong, working vision for the organization, putting personnel in their position of strength where they can excel and dominate, focusing resources to carrying out the core mission, and designing and implementing strategies to grow the bottom-line. The way an artist visualizes a painting, is the same way my mind sees cash flow. I find that extra 10% cost reduction or 5% revenue increase that others can’t. My left brain, analytical mind combines with the creative, right brain to paint a picture of organizational optimization.
I have broad expertise and a deep knowledge base in business, organizational management, finance, and legal matters. My functional strengths are in operational management, data analytics, sales and strategic business development, managerial accounting, capability maturity, portfolio/program management, and regulatory compliance.

I want to continue helping organizations and teams reach their potential and dominate their industry. Consulting, full-time, and contract inquiries welcome.
In the last four years, the contracts I’ve directly managed have only received ratings of “exceptional”. This is across the board in every grading category. These exceptional reports have a great impact on the company’s ability to obtain and be favored for other federal contracts.
My top five strengths according to Gallups Strength Finder test are:
These work together great in leadership roles as I’m constantly learning and adapting, but I still get things done, while having a commanding enough presence to lead under various circumstances.
