This new path in mechanical design culminates my experiences in marketing, design, and as a tradesman.

Focused on getting positive results, I strategize to improve an organization’s brand, lead capture process, and overall customer experience. My experience encompasses working with Authors, Real Estate Agents, and small business owners of all types (science, logistics, personal training, distribution, and non-profit).

I work best in a team. I believe that colaboration and teamwork brings creativity and results. I like activating a plan. The faster we actualize a plan, the faster we get results.
