As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to numbers and math. In grade school I was the kid who was picked first for the math team…and last for the baseball team. But I’d say it worked out okay for me!
I love the story a set of numbers can tell. I also love the fact that numbers are objective. A correctly interpreted set of numbers tells a story about what happened and provides insight into what behaviors need to change to impact the results you are seeking.
My love of numbers led me to a 30+ year career in financial management. I have created business infrastructure for a variety of technology start-up companies and helped businesses restore themselves to profitability by implementing turnaround programs. One of my proudest achievements was being part of the team that took the online banking provider Digital Insight public several years ago.
Throughout my experience, I’ve found that I thrive when I can resolve financial problems within tight time frames and limited budgets.
What this means for you is that I have the drive, problem-solving skills and the experience to move your financing through the various lending milestones in a timely manner, and the communication skills to keep you informed as each milestone is achieved.
In my free time, you might find me at a car show. I love classic cars, especially muscle cars (1969 Camaro, anyone?) and often spend my Saturday morning walking the rows of cars at the informal gathering of car enthusiasts called “Donut Derelicts.”
I’m a voracious reader as well. Two of my all-time favorite reads are: “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand and “Good to Great” by Jim Collins.
I also have a passion for home renovation projects and love getting my hands dirty (my power tool collection has taken over the garage!). Most recently I’ve helped my brother remodel his kitchen and build his outdoor entertainment space. My current project? I’m in the middle of renovating my home and am getting ready to tear out the kitchen to rebuild it.
