Thank you for visiting me!

An engineer with traditional, Western common sense

solving problems, creating opportunities, championing freedom



“I seek to bring in a leadership and vision based on coming from the real world, where we make things better not make things harder.”

“After 25 yrs. as a project manager, engineer, financial manager, and family man, I have learned an important lesson.  Whether I’m meeting with a CFO in a board room, working with a construction professional on a jobsite, or helping my wife with her business or our family, I am not the guy with all the answers.  Instead, I’m the guy who can listen, understand, and work hard to discover those answers and solve problems.”
