This Web site is my place online to present my professional activities and make new connections.

Since the early 1990’s I have been leveraging resources in local communities to create value within new project development platforms. Whether via retail plazas, Internet town halls, or multi-platform media programs (TV, radio & digital) my passion has been to serve local communities and forge new pathways for creative energies.
