I live now in Arizona, MST, when not traveling. However, I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and also have lived in New York, New Jersey, Hawaii, Connecticut, Indiana, California, Washington, Wisconsin, Ohio and throughout Europe and the Orient during my career.
I graduated from Indiana University, with a Masters of Business Administration and completed the Post Graduate Financial Management Program at Stanford University. I have a very active financial investment and management consulting practice where my areas of expertise are designing, developing, and implementing Activity Based Costing and Management Systems as well as helping start up companies obtain seed capital in their formation and going public through IPO's.
