Summary of Qualifications

Results-driven actuary with a proven record of $3.3 billion modified

coinsurance reserves of reinsurance along with $184 billion fund withheld

on Schedule S page 3 Section 1 of the Blue Book for Statutory Reserves.

Recognized for selling and maintaining various systems for valuations for

clients producing $1.45 M each year. Consulted with companies to meet

their high expectations. For annuities I worked on several companies

ALM's, and the cash flow testing of assets and liabilities. The

competitor credited rates, the assumed credited and dividend interest rates

of competitors, investment yields varying by interest scenario, and company

investment strategy. This included both fixed and variable annuities,

providing the company had both types of annuities.
