I was embedded within the publishing industry during the first decade of this millennium.  Despite long hours and a hectic schedule full of deadlines and travel throughout the United States, it was undoubtedly the most satisfying time of my professional career.  In coordination with my business partners and the many friends who worked for/with us, I was successfully communicating through books, magazines, and events to an audience of over 100,000 professionals every month.  It was very invigorating and even more rewarding.

Much of the enjoyment within publishing occurs during the journey or producing the final work. That was truly the case during the efforts put together with Futurus Communications, Land Development Today LLC, and Sustainable Land Development International – the three companies that I was a part of co-founding which generated a lifetime of friendships and experiences.

My first 10-12 years of professional communication was afforded to me through athletics.  I served in the field of public relations and athletic management at three colleges and a professional sports team while also being a freelance sports reporter for three newspapers.  During that span I also was a news and sports videographer at  an ABC-affiliated TV station while also serving as the sports director and board operator at two radio stations.  These experiences were almost equally split between Erie, Pennsylvania and Dubuque, Iowa.

Before, during, and after these two segments of my professional career, I have sharpened my communication skills by teaching.  Since 1986 I have been an adjunct instructor, teaching communication-related courses at five different colleges and universities.

I have also worked professionally in sales and marketing for a few companies as well, in both Erie and Dubuque.
