Hi there, and thanks for the visit. I really appreciate you stopping by. I love helping people, a lot. Generally, I love to find purpose and meaning in everything that I do because that purpose drives the overall performance of my work and projects. I believe strongly in the universal law of sowing and philosophy of abundance - there is no scarcity other than what we create in our own minds.  There us nothing that brings me joy and fulfillment like being a part of an accomplishment for a project that will have a lasting impact on the life of a business. 


I started a full service digital agency in fort Worth, Texas to help small business and home based businesses find purpose in their work.  Did I say that, I sometimes speak with some funny accent that may annoy some people,  although others find that exotic and refreshing? Regardless, my (accent reduction) mentors (my kids) taught me to speak slowly. So no problem there.  

I enjoy road trips and travels generally. My family and I have been to a least 36 U.S states so far, and several countries outside the USA including Canada, UAE, Belgium, Germany, and United Kingdom just to mention a few. There are a few more places that are on top of my bucket list of places to visit - Japan, Singapore, and Jamaica - I like to see the late reggae legend Bob Marley's birth place.
