Story
Tagline
Proven, Innovative Leader
Introduction
I am a Proven, Innovative leader with a successful  track record of building better businesses via accelerated growth, global expansion, new business models, strategic alliances, and sustained competitive advantage.  I've created over $1B of shareholder value during my 25 year career at General Electric, AGY , Evonik and Cyanco.

I help my teams develop creative ideas and then inspire them around a compelling future state vision which fuels their confidence and thus motivates the long march towards successful execution.  

Think it Up, Plan it Out, Get it Done.  Don't worry if it hasn't been done (yet). 

I carry an American passport, but have a global brain and have proven successful as a trusted business partner in a variety of cultures, including multiple experiences building businesses in China, Japan, and Taiwan. I lived in Japan for several years and have spent significant time in China.

I'm a dedicated husband and father committed to strong family connections.  My passions outside of work include kiteboarding, stand-up paddlesurfing, surfing, road and mountain biking, and interesting music.

My Google+ Stance:  I'm here to share and to learn.  I'm not here to win some game with a score.  I will frequently circle back anyone who circles me that A) Has a profile and B) at least a few public posts with some content, and engages with me somehow in my stream.

My key circles (let me know via private share if you think you belong in one or more of them):
  • Business
  • Clean and Green
  • Social Technology
  • China
  • Japan
  • Music
  • Science
  • Eye Candy (photos, animated gifs)
  • Kiters
  • Surfers
