Involving a number of enterprises including global corporations, small businesses, charities, real estate agents, high-end retail and starting businesses that have included eCommerce. I combine any role with common sense and passion to make a difference. I’m always focused on taking action and learning along the way. I just do it! see what works and tweak. The good news is that I’ve packed in so many experiences, both personally and professionally, I can identify opportunities and challenges.
