I am the author of How to Find a Job, Career and Life You Love. Please visit my website at for more information about me and additional content.

While I wear many hats, my life and career has always been focused on people. As an human resources executive, entrepreneur, writer, coach, theatre director, producer, speaker, and Chairman of World Child Cancer USA, my passion and purpose involves touching, inspiring and educating others with my work.

For more than two decades, I have lived and worked throughout the US, Europe, Africa, and Asia. My work experience ranges from Broadway theatre to serving as VP of HR for the Fortune 300 medical device company, Stryker. I am a contributing writer for Forbes and Huffington Post.

Enhancing my education is an ongoing affair, but I have previously studied Labor Relations at Cornell University, New York State School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and Advanced Leadership at Harvard Business School. I hold a BA from California State University, Fullerton, as well as a BS and JD from Saratoga University School of Law.
