My career has provided for a wide breadth of experiences and opportunities, from heavy equipment manufacturing and distribution to the high tech interactive gaming sector. From engaging in the growth of a organization from its infancy of 214 employees with $20M Annual Revenue, to its maturity with over 4000 employees worldwide and over $600M in Annual Revenue.
