While my educational background is based in business, I have been a fixture in the weather industry for over 20 years, the past 10 of which have been applied directly to building global brands within the private sector. I am an alumnus of the Oklahoma State University Spears School of Business where academic focus fell within Marketing and International Business.
Since the late 90's I've launched and sold or transferred over a dozen corporations and during this time I have amassed a great deal of knowledge regarding investment, start-up, optimal organizational structure, operations, and preparing for sale.
I've streamlined operations processes since my days in the home healthcare space, helping individuals breathe better via essential DME products ranging from nebulizers to full-time ventilators. During this period, my team revolutionized the means by which physicians issue nebulization systems, eliminating the need for a "four-time exchange" by improving the process by which these items are prescribed and placed with a patient-client. This efficient, cost-saving measure greatly benefited the patient, the issuing physician and the DME, and is now a standard practice throughout the U.S.
Post healthcare I applied my business knowledge to more ventures in the form of consultancy and investment which I still dabble in today. The weather space is my passion and with so much room to expand, the only limitation industry players have is insight and a full understanding of how weather impacts absolutely everything. That's where I come in.
Entrepreneurship within the lucrative private weather industry has been my focus for the past 10 years. Today I serve as Senior Vice President of Marketing for Weather Decision Technologies, Inc. At WDT it is my duty to make highly scientific product and service offerings palatable to the non-scientist buyer.
My contribution to the weather industry:
2016 marks 22 years of storm chasing from as far south as central Texas to as far north as South Dakota. I travel thousands of miles in a single storm season in pursuit of severe weather of all kinds. My photos and video have been featured in numerous print and web instances worldwide.
