I have an intrepid curiosity for learning, teaching, technology and interesting things. I am not an in-the-box thinker, nor have I had a traditional career path. My choices have been creative and varied. During my early career as a naval architect, I was the most artistic of the engineers and the most numeric of the artists. My fresh and personal appreciation for left and right brain synergies enables me to connect to young adults, ranging from artists to engineers.
I can help design your direction. As an executive at Disney, I learned to design a dream and present it in a compelling and emotionally connected way. Marketing and branding remain core competencies, and I use these skills to help my students stand out.
I completed the certificate program for Independent Educational Consultants from University of California, Irvine. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from SUNY Maritime College and studied post-graduate engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Hartford. I am an instructor for the University of California, Irvine Certificate Program for Independent Educational Consultants and teach workshops to fellow consultants on marketing and branding.
I am a Certified Educational Planner and an active Professional member of the IECA, HECA, and NACAC.
