About Me

I am currently a writer, speaker, graphic artist and a blues harmonica player/singer. I am also a co-founder of GovFlex.com (we match government contractors & agencies with freelance experts) and a government contracting and business development expert witness.

I am the author of Romancing the Buddha, also a successful one-man show, Winning and Managing Government Business, How to Develop a Winning Small Business Innovation Proposal (with Eric Adolphe), The Enlightened Manager, and hundreds of leadership and Buddhist articles. I am also a motivational speaker in the greater Seattle area. 

Until I retired in August 2016, I was the president of Celerity Works providing business and sales advisory services (founded Celerity Works in 1999). I also provide expert testimony on government contract litigation cases. Prior to that, I was a business development executive for IT contractors for 13 years.

I have advised over 70 contractors and coached over 250 executives, managers and BD professionals. I presented 15 popular knowledge webinars and wrote numerous columns for industry magazines & news stations.

I specialize in:

- Government business development knowledge
- BD process improvement
- BD, capture and proposal training and coaching
- Company strategic growth planning
- Opportunity capture strategy and planning
- Project management system improvement and training.
