Visionary, Business Mogul, Philanthropist
For over 35 years as an entrepreneur and an early adopter of technology, I have driven success by pioneering innovative software solutions that revolutionize business operations.
In the early days of the technology frontier, I had the rare opportunity of developing software that changed the world. I was contracted by Ford Motor Company to develop and interface link from its MS-DOS application to their new communications satellite known as Ford Star. I was sought out by Microsoft as a premier beta test company for their revolutionary Windows product, Windows 95 and released the second generation of my DMS software product in conjunction with the initial release of Windows. General Motors chose to partner with me for their China operations while the Daimler Corporation selected my company for their North America operations.
Although I am best known for my business acumen, my interests have always varied. I am an enthusiastic club tennis player, backwoods snowboarder and adventuresome jet-skier who relishes jumping large, rolling ocean waves. I enjoy auto racing in many forms, from driving my Ferrari 458 Spider on the track to high-speed driving on winding European roads with the Porsche and Audi driving clubs. I have a Citation 550 Jet but am not yet rated to fly it as I only hold a single-engine pilot’s license.
When I am not pushing my personal and business boundaries, I enjoy exotic travel worldwide savoring molecular dining and fine wines. I am a Level 2 Sommelier with an appreciation for Old World Wines.
