For more than 40 years, it has been a privilege, honor, and humbling experience to serve in leadership roles in both the US military and in civilian life. This includes 14 years in international banking with Chase Manhattan and other banks in Europe, Latin America, and New York. Thereafter, for more than 20 years, I contributed to the success of public and private firms helping more than 20 entrepreneurs start and build successful businesses.

I served as CFO for a publicly traded, clean-tech, start-up company. Having worked internationally more than 20 years, I performed finance and sales leadership functions conducting business in Portuguese, German, and Spanish. My greatest personal achievement has been my 48-year love affair with wife and best friend, Marianne. I encourage everyone to achieve objectives through meaningful endeavors that promote success for life.

I earned a B.S. degree from the U.S. Naval Academy and an MBA from The Thunderbird School of Global Management. I am a proud member of Rotary of Signal Hill.

When I consider the opportunity we at AAL have to share our enthusiasm for leadership and culture development and see the joy it brings to other like –minded individuals and organizations, I get goosebumps.
