How I can help you

I have decades of experience as a banker (both commercial and investment) as well as a manager and board member for emerging entrepreneurial companies and non-profits. I’ve also been a serial entrepreneur in both the service and manufacturing sectors and have extensive international business and international trade experience. I have over 25 years of experience on China trade issues and have helped numerous companies with China trade as well as advising both U.S. and Chinese Government departments on China trade and bilateral relations. I have taught business management, finance, entrepreneurship and law in both business and law schools. I’m delighted to work within SCORE to use that experience to help you realize your dreams.
