What best describes my company
Buying/Selling a Business, Consulting, Networking
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.).

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
