Business growth through economic development




At heart, I am what Malcom Gladwell would call a 'connector'.  Clients have called me their personal lobbyist, as I have always had the ability to find a connection with most everyone will go to great lengths to put good people and businesses together.  That lends to my other passion as an economic development activist. That being said, economic development and the revitilization of Northern Nevada through public and private sector partnerships is a true driving force and, from an altruistic perspective, I can leave a lasting mark on The Biggest Little City I call home. 

To that end, I am positioning 3rd Rock Communications as a private sector 'welcome wagon' through my Sherpa Program, assisting businesses new to the area with strategic connections to gain expedited traction in the Reno/Sparks area.

With over 20 years successful experience in business sector management, financial services and technology, organically growing business and personal value through a thorough understanding of needs and goals, providing guidance and customer-first advice to achieve results.

I have been quoted and published in print and online, including Wall St. Journal, Reuters, MSN,, Psychology Today, The Grind, Northern Nevada Business Weekly and the Reno Gazette Journal.
