Summary

My primary fields of concentration include design, development, management, and sales for projects serving both public and private interests. I served as a project manager and marina specialist for ATM on a wide variety of national and international projects. My areas of marina expertise include new waterfront development as well as redevelopment. I have led or participated in more than 30 marine projects and evaluated over 100 marinas. My project management experience is supplemented by my diverse marina operations background specifically, management of the Thompson boat Center (Washington, D.C.) and the Daniel Island Marina (Charleston, SC). I have been directly responsible for all daily marina operations and up to 550 total berths. I have authored multiple articles which have appeared in trade publications which has afforded me both national and international exposure. These articles stem from my insights of marina operations/management, interviews of leading marine industry contacts, and experiences gained while I worked on world renowned waterfront developments and mega-projects (Dubai) across the globe. My background also includes property and association management experience. I have established and oversaw horizontal regimes and mixed-use waterfront development associations. Furthermore, I have obtained credentials as a Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) and I am currently pursuing a Certified Marina Manager (CMM) designation. Finally, I have excelled as a sales representative within three Fortune 500 organizations with proven results. Consequently, I am a multi-year recipient of both sales excellence and forecast achievement awards within each of these organizations. Over the last 11 years I have implemented all of these characteristics and experience with proven results where ever I go.
