Since the early 1990’s, I've built businesses and careers. More recently, I've actively pursued opportunities to help businesses and individuals to gain focus, communicate their message, and achieve their goals. My current area of focus is developing newly established firms and firms that have had better times.
In a career spanning more than twenty years in financial services, I've has worked in many roles, including; futures trader, portfolio manager, relationship management, and more recently business leadership. Prior to entering the finance industry I enjoyed a career as a Chemical Engineer.
I'm a regular speaker at industry events, a lecturer, a mentor, and is actively involved with several industry bodies.
