Traveling to over 50 countries, global culture has continued to shape my views
Putting customers and associates first has always served me well...
About me. . .
CMMO | Marketing & Merchandising | I love connecting with the consumer, whether through product or messaging. I am currently using my 30+ years of industry experience for a purpose driven US Navy command serving patrons around the globe.
CONNECTOR OF DOTS | This is a recent revelation...I love connecting passionate, talented, engaged people and watching the sparks fly. Success is when I see two (or more) people having an engaging dialogue, and I realize that I had the good fortune of connecting them
PURPOSE DRIVEN | I am a strong believer in diversity & inclusion, the power of talented teams, mentoring & life long learning. I have always believed in these issues, but recently have started to migrate from being "passively supportive" to playing more of an active role.
LIFE LONG GOALS | Being a better human, husband, & dad. Always be listening and learning. Leave the world a better place than I found it. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I fail, but I keep trying...
LIFE MANTRA | I have several and they shift from time to time, but consistently, "There is always a solution" and recently, "Keep the faith." I believe there is a solution to most problems that we face, if we are proactive. I believe that we are strengthened if we maintain faith in ourselves and in those around us.
