I am a US Air Force Academy graduate and pilot. I have a Bachelors of Science in Economics. I flew KC-135 tankers and also worked as the budget officer in the comptroller’s squadron. I started off my civilian career as a stock broker for Dean Witter. After leaving Dean Witter I worked at a regional Broker Dealer called National Securities. I was a research analyst and authored and published reports in the aerospace sector. I am no stranger to public speaking and was a guest professor at the local community college teaching about the stock and options markets. In 1999 I left the securities business to test my skills as an entrepreneur. Currently I work as a contract CFO for various public companies.
