How I can help you

I can help inventors, entrepreneurs and startups in business model development, prototyping of their ideas, then guide development and implementation of a comprehensive business plan. I can also help SMB manufacturers evaluate their business processes, enterprise systems, project management and best practices, then guide programs to enhance organizational effectiveness.  

I have had extensive experience guiding inventors and start-ups in concept or feasibility prototype development, business planning, IP protection, product design and development, product assembly, partner selection and development, and sales launch preparation. Currently leveraging that experience as part of an industrial product start-up. 

In various consulting roles, I specialized in implementation of major enterprise systems, engineering systems, process re-engineering, best practices, project management, innovation programs and advanced technologies for manufacturing clients. In educator roles, I developed new management, manufacturing and engineering curriculum while extensively leveraging learning management systems (LMS) and digital learning environment (DLE) technologies.
