I am eager to guide your organization toward unparalleled success in the intricate realm of international markets, applying my 30 years of success as a Foreign Commercial Service diplomat and global markets advisor. Whether you are seeking guidance on market entry strategies, localization, cultural adaptation, or global marketing campaigns, I stand ready to assist. 

Mission to Succeed

As Channel Architect, my mission is clear: To empower companies and governments with the knowledge, tools, and strategies they need to excel in complex international markets in today’s interconnected world. Success hinges on building strategic partnerships, fostering innovation, and upholding ethical trade practices.

Designing Global Channels

I was privileged to serve as a commercial diplomat for the United States for 12 years, during which time I lived and worked on three continents to strengthen the international competitiveness of American businesses and communities abroad. How? By relentlessly promoting exports, enticing foreign investment, and ensuring equitable access to global markets. The results of my work are reflected by companies who have realized new streams of revenue through strategic partnerships that prosper communities worldwide.

As a private sector advisor, I have identified and designed robust sales and marketing channels that transcend borders, working hand-in-hand with multinational teams of vendors and alliance partners, coaching, and guiding them to achieve their maximum potential. Together, we have created powerful multicultural trading platforms that build brand equity to attract audiences of clients and investors.

Creating Your Global Market Success

Whether you represent a government seeking global market expansion or a company looking for new international sales opportunities, I will be your Channel Architect as you embark on this transformative journey.

Public Speaking and Panel Moderation

Clients and colleagues alike have praised my skills as a public speaker when addressing government, industrial, and educational audiences. Here is where I have called into play my aptitude for foreign languages and extensive media training. I pride myself on crisp and concise deliveries of carefully prepared remarks. As a master of ceremonies for programs and a moderator of panels, I have enabled industry analysts, host nation government officials, and ambassadors to convey their messages about complex political and commercial issues in convivial settings.
