I am a top performing sales representative  who was number one in my company out of 400 salespeople for two and a half years.  My first year in the business I was the highest grossing agent in the history of the company.  Currently I am looking for an opportunity to help develop a business and increase it's sales in an industry that is doing well.

     In my years as a sales professional I have increased companies sales numbers by instituting training programs and working hard towards the companies goals. I have the ability to add value to any type of company sales organization as well as the ability to implement new programs. I have been a salesman for my entire adult life and have the ability to cold call, door knock, business to business sales, and in home presentations.  My skills are continuously improved because of my constant striving to learn more and better my abilities as a salesman.


As a member of the community in Southern Nevada I believe it is important to give back to the community and establish relationships with other business owners around town. Being successful requires a group of like minded professionals with similar interests in mind.
