                       — GREETINGS! —
Naturally you want to know a bit about my story. For the last 15 years, as marketing director I've focused on helping establish the USS Midway Museum most-visited naval ship museum in the world.

Since 2004 I have been marketing director of the museum. As lead spokesperson, I have appeared on the History Channel, Travel Network, Discovery Channel, Outdoor Channel, and Tennis Channel, among others.

I also have given more than 100 speeches and presentations, ranging from inspirational dinner keynote speeches to team-building presentations. Audiences have ranged from students to school administrators, from community and civic leaders to company executives.

Prior to 2004, I was a partner in two of San Diego's largest marketing communication agencies. I have an Accreditation in Public Relations and have been accepted into the prestigious PRSA Counselors Academy. I have a political science degree  from Arizona State University, after studying international relations at Uppsala (Sweden) University.

Most importantly, my wife, son and daughter-in-law inspire me every day. For them I write to preserve the legacy of those who have made our family's life in America possible.
