I am a marketing and merchandising executive with almost thirty years of experience in marketing, buying, business development, product development, and licensing in both the for-profit and non-profit industry. I successfully create and implement marketing plans, partnerships, product assortments, and licensing agreements that drive sales increases and create long-term collaborations. I possess excellent interpersonal and team-management skills and pride myself on creating collaborative environments that focus on developing talent and maximizing potential. I live in Nashville, Tennessee with my wife Dacia and my daughters Myla and Paige. I also have the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors of the Nashville Children's Theatre.
