International trade and marketing have been the backbone of my career. More recently I've focused on US market analysis and market entry strategies for new products. Another recent focus has been the development of interactive sales tools such as a distributor web platform for business intelligence and product quotes.I've written several published case study articles and am heavily involved in graphic design, multimedia management, database management, web editing, and strategic planning. With all activities I draw on a trusted network of industry professionals (friends) which have focused their skills into specific niches such as animation, photography, videography, graphic design, programming and more. I've developed close relationships with various industry media contacts and continuously drive efforts to publish meaningful information for their readers. I've also worked with local media to create more local awareness for SEEPEX. This helps the company attract valuable talent.
