An emotional intelligence expert, author, and award-winning speaker. Also a crazy, goofy, 12 year old trapped in a 40-something-year-old’s body!

I work with companies and organizations that want to better understand their customers and employees so they can build better relationships.

I am the author of The Rapport Advantage: Transforming the Way Leaders Communicate. I created “E.I. On Demand Powered By The Rapport Advantage”, a series of online/web-based training emotional intelligence programs for three distinct audiences: Companies, Couples and Colleges.

Why am I so passionate about E.I.? The simple answer is: it saved my marriage.

My wife and I were having some communication challenges early in our marriage. We didn’t know it at the time, but we were complete opposites in terms of our temperament. Through the application of Emotional Intelligence concepts, we began to understand ourselves and each other better. We became a super couple!!! We have been together for nearly thirty years. Without applying our E.I. knowledge we wouldn’t be together today.

My most requested programs focus on:

Leveraging Emotional Intelligence for Business and Personal Success

Understanding Behaviors of Team Members, Leading to Higher Productivity

Communicating Effectively as an Organization That Leads to Improved Culture

My unique and interactive style will have your audiences engaged from the first minute to the last (watch out for flying candy!!)
As the CEO of Solor, Inc. a national medical billing company, my techniques helped grow the company from a start up to a multi-million dollar entity with business in 23 states from Washington to Florida.  One of my many titles is Certified Human Behavior Consultant (CHBC). I use the DISC model of human behavior to help others understand themselves better from a personality perspective.  This information leads to dynamic positive changes in the way attendees communicate.

The upstate of South Carolina is home for me, my wife and our five children.  When not performing my CEO duties, speaking, and being a husband and Dad, I serve as Captain Emeritus of the east coast’s most well known Scenario Paintball Team, Capital Offense.
