Business Consultant + Coach + Educator
Hi, I like to help people in business, education, and philanthropy create sustainable legacies. I work with global companies and personal brands that change the world.
I’m a fan of 20% theory and 80% practice. I’ve never taken a formal business course in my life, yet managed to become a medical director that helped grow a business from 1 to 17 locations.
Because of this experience, the state allowed me to teach business in public institutions, and serve as the state representative for vocational education (CTE/STEM) in Oregon. My last part-time stint was at Portland State University and Concordia where I got to bridge the gap between college curricula and industry needs.
Back in 2009, I created a digital marketing agency long before social media marketing was even a thing! I have consulted over 200 physician practices and then created a system to serve other industries.
However, not everything in my career story has been smooth.
Let’s just reframe failure, shall we?
Failure is feedback. I’m not ashamed to say that I failed my first startup in spectacular fashion. Ultimately, these lessons made me become a better businessman.
Hundreds of clients later, today I work with businesses that need to deliver real results to their customers and need someone with experience to get them there.
