The non-profit space resonates with me.

Devoting my professional energies to causes that I’m passionate about creates an appropriate career-life balance for which I am grateful.

Over a majority of the past decade I’ve been fortunate enough to strike this balance with The Ecology Center, a growth-orientated non-profit organization, where I’ve provided operational and executive leadership during the company’s growth from $600k to nearly $10m in revenue.

Although the path to get there was not a traditional one, I’ve had some interesting stops and achievements along the way, where I somehow developed a sixth sense for operational efficiency, foundational business platforms, and organizational growth.

At DreamWorks Animation I learned the importance of process, systems, and efficiency in shaping the stability of an organization. Docuserv USA not only taught me how to turn an entrepreneurial idea into a thriving venture, but also laid the way for my acceptance into Chapman’s MBA program, where I graduated top of the Executive class. I then founded a 501c3 corporation for the production of animated education for children.

Currently I oversee the Business Operations at The Ecology Center, including finance / accounting, insurance, contracts, legal, human resources, information technology, risk management and the administrative functions of the organization.

My passion is, and has always has been, for the environmental and social causes that make the world a happier place. If I can help organizations achieve their visions for the world by creating efficiencies, increasing capacities, and experiencing sustainable growth, then I’m doing my part.

And that creates the balance that is so important to me.
