I offer 30+ years of experience leading highly complex, mixed methodology, projects to successful completion. I place special emphasis on leading teams to meet business objectives.

My early career began as a hardware and software development engineer, which lead to ever-increasing leadership roles. After the stock market collapse of 2001, I founded the MultiMedia Republic, an independent project management consultancy. Clients included Motorola, a prime-contractor for the U.S. Armed Forces, and the South Florida Water Management District. I held a Top Secret Special Access (SA) clearance with the U.S. Army, and I am a former Vice President of Education for the Project Management Institute's South Florida Chapter.

I wrote the Project Management undergraduate Program for Taft University, a contributing author of PMI's Program Management Standard, I authored 'Managing Expectations" in ISSIG Review (2007), Vol. I, no. 2. which was cited in a best selling book, "Managing Complex Projects: A New Model.” By Kathleen B. Hass.

I teach tools and methods -- but when it comes to leading teams, I place special emphasis on the soft skills. The latter may be conveyed in a conversation or two -- but most often calls for mentoring.

Lastly, I am Project Management Professional (PMP) certified and Scrum Master (SCM) certified.
My hobby is chess and my passion is teaching.

I come from a family of self-made entrepreneurs who played as hard as they worked. At the age of 18 I joined the U.S. Army, which quickly cured me of a large chip on my shoulder. The military taught me the importance of discipline, integrity, respect and appreciation. After discharge I parlayed the technical training I received in the Army with a University education and began a successful career as a computer engineer. I had an uncanny ability to grasp the technical aspects of my job — but I found that I also had a knack for the soft skills; interpersonal skills, and office politics. This would eventually come to be known as ‘Emotional Intelligence.’ When my coworkers were complaining about bosses and their business decisions, I found myself subtly mentoring my peers on how to cope and/or deal with others and situations. This is a slippery slope of course — because it is easy to cross the line and be seen as meddler. As I often say, you can show people the buzzsaw, but you can’t stop them from walking into it. Fast forward several years, as a member of the Board of Directors for the Project Management Institute’s South Florida Chapter, I was responsible for Continuing Education for our membership. I launched two initiatives that I am very proud of: a Think Tank and a Mentoring Program, the latter of which focused on how to relate to business and speak the language of business leaders. My efforts in assisting others in their career growth has been the most rewarding of my 30+ year career. I’ve helped men and women from pre-college age to seasoned managers in both industry and government. I would love to help you too!
