Professional with over 30 years of experience w/ extensive expertise in sales, 21st century marketing, Internet startups, electronic networking, & negotiating with great passion for wine & dedicated to becoming a leading expert in the wine industry.

Most significant has been my entrepreneurial experience, starting over 30 years ago in the design & development of a pollution containment device for supertankers to the creation of one of the 1st fully dynamic ecommerce. My startup skill is based upon developing 3 of my own tech companies. My familiarity & understanding of Internet consumers has developed over 12 years through a retail oriented dot com business, 6 years of working with consumers utilizing the Internet in the housing industry & once again in the wine business.

I have taught various courses on technology & Internet marketing both professionally and at the college level. Utilizing state of the art marketing techniques, coupled with expert electronic networking skills, my ability to reach and influence both business professional and consumers is unsurpassed. I exhibit considerable innovation and creativity in my business life, but everything is based upon the ability to strategically leverage ideas for competitive advantage.

Throughout my life I have always demonstrated strong leadership skills in all phases of my life. My ability for public speaking has been demonstrated numerous times, including giving a keynote speech in Chicago on Ecommerce in 2000. I actively write wine blogs (over 50) on 7 different sites. My educational background includes a BS (in Geology & Geophysics), 2 MBAs (Strategic Planning & MIS) and ½ a PhD (Intern. Bus.).
