Biography / Resume

Born in New York City I grew up around the United States as Dad managed post-war auto plant construction for General Motors. I attended schools in Atlanta, Georgia; Bedford, Indiana; Fort Worth, Texas; Marion, Indiana; Troy, Ohio; Denver, Colorado; and Dallas, Texas before  going to the University of Notre Dame - intending to study Architecture but completing studies with a Bachelor Business Administration. After graduation, I was drafted into the United States Army and served two years at Fort Hood, Texas as a personnel management Sergeant in the 13th Support Brigade. 

After the Service I joined Touche Ross and Company, the "Big 8" firm working for a year on national retail, manufacturing, and trucking clients. Toward the end of 1970, a close friend from high school had just started a small company named Showco providing sound equipment for concerts. He needed some help on the Led Zeppelin national tour so I joined the tour in progress. After the tour, I pursued an interest in real estate sal44 and obtained a Texas broker's license. After some interesting experiences in residential sales I returned to the road the next year to drive and set up for the 1971 Led Zeppelin tour. I remained on the road with James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Alice Cooper and then traveled to Germany and Sweden for Jesus Christ Superstar touring productions. I remained with the company as Treasurer and Director through its first seven years of growth. Showco evolved into the public company Vari-lite International. and then merged with PRG, still the leading stage production services company. 

I returned to real estate in property management and then joined the national retail chain Rings and Things for a ten year period of acquisition and growth. During this time I became active in community and alumni volunteer activities serving as a committee chairman of The 500 inc arts support group and as President of the Notre Dame Club of Dallas . This was a period of significant personal development including the birth of two children and the death of my brother Robert.

While pursuing a career change toward non-profit oriented activities, I became a temporary financial worker aligned with several agencies and performed financial record-keeping,  consulting, management and database development work for companies such as  Lone Star Steel, Cash America International , Lincoln Property CompanyStanley Tool Company  and the Resolution Trust Corporation. Since 1996 I have primarily operated as a "controller for the day" for small businesses in a wide variety of industries including internet sales, retail services, computer software development, value added computer resellers, retail diamond sales, furniture sales, physical therapy, roofing, photography, real estate development, amusement machine vending, and mortgage brokerage services.

I am most satisfied with my participation in volunteer service for my church, PTA  and alumni club where I have been allowed many opportunities for growth and development of beneficial relationships.  My objective is to bring a sense of balance and perspective to any  professional engagement that will enhance the efficient and profitable management of the enterprise.
