About Me:

Growing up as the son of a career Army Veteran I was afforded the unique opportunity to travel all over the United States and experience life of the military through a different lens. I am a business and leadership consultant with a focus on empowering veteran entrepreneurs. Residing in Fresno, California, I am currently enhancing my expertise through a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management at Fresno Pacific University. My background in operational leadership and project management is geared toward helping veterans translate their military experience into successful civilian business ventures.

In my role as Department Manager, I successfully implemented strategies that boost customer satisfaction and drive sales, demonstrating my ability to innovate and lead in dynamic settings. My experiences as a Safety & Compliance Officer and Facilities Manager have sharpened my skills in regulatory compliance and operational safety, which are crucial for effective business consulting.

Beyond my professional endeavors, I am deeply involved in community service as an Eagle Scout and Assistant Scout Master, where I lead community projects and mentor youth. This role has reinforced my leadership qualities and my commitment to service.

With a combination of business acumen, leadership capabilities, and a deep understanding of veteran affairs both during and after their life in the military, I am uniquely positioned to consult and support veteran entrepreneurs. My approach combines robust management skills with a profound respect for the veteran community, in the hopes of making me a trusted advisor in their entrepreneurial journeys.
