A well-traveled, 14 year veteran of the global business craft. I have leadership and project management experience in areas of the global purchasing, negotiation, analysis and sales functions of a multinational corporation. My work reaches and impacts 12,000 employees, 1,000,000 products, 2,000 suppliers and more than 500,000 customers across the globe. I have a proven ability to conduct research studies, author performance reports, create analytical models, negotiate with global suppliers and customers, and foster the success and development of employees whether they are in global purchasing, finance, selling, operations, analytics, or IT. I look at my skills and body of work as a person who takes things out of an equation. Whether it's white noise, red herrings, green algae-coated bs, the shades of personality in people, I wade through the deep-blue sea, looking for top-notch, bottomline success. The ideal project manager. On a personal level: I could use a shopping cart for most library trips. I always have projects whether its studying about human DNA, learning about how to construct a coin pusher game from scratch, how to put together an HVAC system in a house, masonry for a Koi pond, or trying to figure out how human psychology plays a part in predicting the cost of copper in the next quarter. Okay, that last one I do at work too. I enjoy learning new things such as math, chemistry, psychology, foreign language, and cooking. I am well-learned in geopolitical and foreign affair topics. Test me on the names of 20 world leaders and 50 country flags. In my life, I have been in many dark alleys across England, Germany, Austria, Hungry, Ukraine, Italy, and Vatican City and the chill air of Ireland and Scotland. I've even been lost in China and loved it. I started a company from my dorm room in college and currently manage 2 others as side-ventures, and frequently trade in the U.S. stock market.
