I am noted for decisive and persistent management style resulting in high level of team productivity, consistently recognized for excellent work ethic and dedication.

I aspire to a senior management position which offers new challenges and long term responsibility with an organization that will effectively utilize my unique competencies, management and communications expertise. That company will encourage original concepts as well as proven strategies aimed at maintaining a leadership position and strength in a national or multinational market.


I have demonstrated management and leadership abilities over a 30-year career in the communications media arena including freelance and contract production of broadcast and non-broadcast programming ranging from commercials to live international televised events. I am uniquely qualified to train individuals in advanced professional video and multimedia production technologies and methodologies. I have designed more than 100 teleproduction facilities including multi-camera studios, linear and non-linear editing suites, corporate meeting and boardrooms, remote radio and television vehicles, CCTV/CATV distribution systems and a theme park exhibit.  My distance learning experience includes having developed the prototype USAF learning center and managed the production of more than 120 instructional media programs.
