When And why did you become a SCORE Counselor?
I have had a diversified business career living abroad and in many areas of the U.S. Sharing these business experiences is a way to give back to the community and to help people succeed in their own business goals.

Business Background:
Early in my career I worked abroad in Europe and Asia exporting food and non-food items to the NATO bases and other military installations throughout the world. Moved on to become the Director of Marketing for frozen foods for the Green Giant Company. Set the strategic direction for the currently line of products and was heavily involved in the development and implementation of new products. Started a food brokerage in San Francisco and grew the business from inception to an organization of seventy five members to become one of the top firms in Northern California. The last phase of my career was starting a company called Consolidated Brands, Inc., to develop products,sourcing products and manufacturing different products for the retail and food service industry. This venture imported food and beverage products from all over the world. It was also instrumental in bring the largest cheese manufacturing plant to California. We brought together investors from Denmark, New Zealand, the U.K. and the U.S. to make this project a success.
