Commissioning Day, United States Navy, 1993

My Story

I’ve spent most of my life, in one capacity or another, serving my country.

I’ve been fortunate enough to receive some of the best training in the world from a variety of schools, programs, and experts over the past 30 years. I’ve also used this training in the real world, and I know how to implement these tactics since making the crossover to the private sector.

My Career

I grew up in Maine and enlisted in the Navy after high school. I attended an Officer Commissioning program, went to college on an NROTC scholarship and graduated as a Commissioned Officer serving in various capacities.

From there, I worked in the private sector including financial (Merrill Lynch), software (ISI), telecom (China2Net), defense (TPG & TPG BLACK), and even for the US government. I started my first business in 1998 and since then I’ve created helped build 7 businesses. (even a restaurant!)

I’ve advised small business owners, other family offices, and even multinational corporations. I have encountered success and failure, but each lesson was valuable in helping me develop a mindset to persevere.

It’s accurate to say I been through situations that I never could have imagined but each experience has helped shape and guide my philosophies on family, business, and the things which are most important.

Next Steps…

My 30+ years of business experience have ranged from the Fortune 500 corporate world, to a tiny startup which grew to over $30M in revenues with very healthy profits. This translates into valuable first-hand knowledge which I can use to help you achieve your own goals. For a confidential (no charge) discussion, feel free to reach out and email me!
