I am first a husband, father, and son. Professionally, I am a strategic management, training, and creative thought leader. I have over 17 years of measured success in telecommunications, finance and higher education industries. Of those seventeen years my time was devoted to sales roles in the telecommunications, service and finance industries. Through all roles a passion for customer satisfaction and retention has been a driving force. I have a versed background in management, organizational leadership and executive strategic communication. Thanks to my MBA concentration in Management paired with my Bachelor in Communications and Business, I enjoy conducting strategic assessments, executing training and development sessions, and creative leadership development.
I completed my MBA in April of 2011. A highlighted opportunity for me that resulted from my MBA at ORU happened the summer of 2010. I was able to present a co-authored paper on the economic impact of Chile on South America in June of 2010 at the Pan Pacific Business Association Conference in Bali, Indonesia alongside co-author and wife, Dr. Rebecca Gunn. Presenting was a special opportunity for sure, but the diversity of academics who were there and the areas of research being explored was incredible.
Nearly completely fluent in Spanish, I enjoy traveling all over the nations and getting to share in the wonderful culture both here and abroad. I have been specifically to 6 Spanish-Latin speaking countries and have developed a special love for the family culture and appreciation for good food! These experiences of travel combined with my studies have helped to solidify my conversational Spanish speaking ability, which has also been helpful for me within the business arena as well.
My favorite “position” is shared as husband and father! I truly enjoy and have a passion for being present as a dad and husband day in and day out with my family. Too many families have physically present but emotionally and spiritually absent fathers. Not on my watch. Thanks for visiting and whether you are a mother or father currently, you are first a daughter or son. Knowing The Father is the most crucial point and decision anyone can make.
