I am an entrepreneur and business owner who enjoys building businesses that empower, educate and inspire people.

These include small business consulting, business marketing presentations, personal development and motivational speaking.

One of the things I love most in life, is communicating with others and the words which make that happen.

I would best be described as a Christian who is happily married, outgoing, personable and very down to earth. I was born in Wurzburg, Germany.

During my teenage years my sister and I enjoyed the privilege of living abroad in Europe as military kids. I also proudly served in the United States Air Force.

Other interests include physical fitness, the enjoyment of travel and experiencing different cultures. I have a very positive demeanor and a great sense of humor. In fact during my college years I did some amateur stand-up comedy.

I love jazz, R&B, classical, gospel and contemporary Christian music as well as have a passion for old school FM and Internet Radio. My other pastimes include enjoying a wide variety of movies, reading, writing, cooking and taking in the awesome ocean views and sunsets of southern Florida.

Glad you stopped by and remember, stay positive!
