I have a natural talent with connecting people, ideas, and products and I am an expert in delivering specialty, high-volume product from factory to retail. With over 15 years of extensive product and market strategy, I have been an integral part of the complete process from concept to consumer. I have excellent relationships with many large retailers and publishers in North/South America, as well as experience with international distribution/retail channels.
In all my positions, in the purchasing, sales, business development, negotiating, product development, and marketing functions in this ever-changing industry, I have easily and consistently overachieved all expectations and challenges presented to me.
