I was born in Chicago, lived in the northwest suburbs, moved away for college, then ultimately returned to Chicago.
I attended Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan, where I graduated with a BS (Bachelor of Science) in Computer Information Systems with a concentration in marketing.
After completing my degree, I moved home to help a friend start a company in the wonderful world of technology. This company came to be called WebWalk, an engine and platform to develop VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) Technologies and content.
I became Vice President of Production, which included responsibilities in production, logistics, equipment development, maintenance, and testing. This involved anything from strategy, construction, development, networking, brand development, production, social media, user experience, web development, systems development, vendor selections, equipment design and manufacture, with exposure to software and web applications and tools.
During this time I became a real estate broker in the State of Illinois.
I graduated from Roosevelt University with an MBA (Masters of Business Administration) as well as a Masters in Real Estate (MSRE). I pursued many educational opportunities outside of a university setting, including private pilot, beekeeping, aquaponics, fiber optics, welding, truck driving, heavy equipment operation; the list goes on.
In the summer of 2011, I started my company, The Bluebird Brand. It is aimed at building companies and organizations from the ground up as well as streamlining processes from within. Through brainstorming, experience, relationships, and tools, I help develop just the right mix of strategies to avoid crucial mistakes and build long lasting innovations. Everyone knows what to do. I focus on how to do it better.
In between projects, I am a guest contractor on Food Network's "Restaurant Impossible", featuring Chef Robert Irvine. We overhaul struggling restaurants, in 2 days, giving them a new look, smoother operations, and an opportunity to grow their business.
I have a passion for helping people, ideas, and companies reach seemingly impossible goals and become successful. I design ways to be faster, better, smarter, and of course easier to use.
As I continue to build out my brand and company, I am also open to helping develop your next big brand, idea, concept, or process.
