Key Accomplishments

I am currently involved in a below the radar sports entertainment development company and have developed a trusted and highly regarded team and network of industry professionals as well as a deep understanding of the global soccer economy. Previously I was involved in an effort to triangulate record labels, advertising agencies and talent/management agencies via brand based music production services. I also co-founded and served as Chairman and CFO of a multi Webby Award winning producer of digital media related to games and affiliated entertainment products. I am traditionally schooled on the finance side of things but my core strengths lie on the marketing side of the road. I am a media junkie who is passionate about music entertainment, sports and public affairs (globally and nationally). I believe strongly that the global economy going forward will be dominated by companies that create, harness and control coveted assets/commodities and I like to be involved with efforts that contribute to the social fabric.
