Executive Coach, Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt, & Strategic Planning Consultant
As Johnny Cash so eloquently said, “I’ve been everywhere, man.” I have worked in practically every industry, was a collegiate rugby national champion, served as a soldier and an airborne infantry officer in the Army, and am now a trusted advisor to executive leadership in the government, commercial, and non-profit sectors. I’ve washed dishes and led men in battle. I’ve driven thirty-thousand dollar freight trucks and improvement efforts totaling in the billions. And all this comes from a guy who was raised by a father in a rock band. I am a performance improvement fanatic, a radical, and I have helped people taste the nectar of victory around the globe. With Lean Acres, we will be able to infect the remaining masses with a passion for success.
