A little bit more about me:
I am a guy who loves life, and I continually strive to be the best I can be and to be a better person with each passing day. I currently live in Northern California with my lovely wife, beautiful daughter, and two dogs, but my heart is in Hawaii where I went to high school and completed my undergraduate.
For my professional background, I am a Senior Manager- Sales Enablement & Training for a cutting edge digital health startup company. Previous to that I was the Worldwide Manager of Sales & Support Training for an exciting and leading productivity software start-up company, Evernote. I started my career in sales which provided me the unique combination of experiences to understand the participants I am training as well as design training that is relevant, useful and provides results.
My background also includes experience building and leading sales teams as a Regional Sales Manager for Healthcare, Medical Device companies & Software Technology companies.
I AM AN ACCIDENTAL TRAINER!
I always knew that I had a passion for sales and for helping others. What I serendipitously learned was that my underlying true passion was specifically for training, coaching, consulting and program development. I guess you can say that I am an accidental trainer, and my early formal training experience came by being selected as a subject matter expert (SME) and providing training to colleagues who initially piqued my interest to focus on training.
As a sales professional, the most rewarding part of the sales cycle for me was the education phase, and helping my customers learn the products or services and how it might help solve their problems or reach their goals. When I got promoted to sales management, I learned that the training and coaching my team was my favorite activity. So I decided to make the most logical decision to focus on what I enjoyed the most and started my self-discovery journey which leads me to learn how to train and teach others. My “formal” start began with my experience in teaching management, leadership, and marketing at a local University.
I was also in the United States Air Force, proudly serving our country. My other passion is continuous learning, and a personal goal was to obtain an MBA. I earned my MBA from the University of Colorado with a specialization in Healthcare Management in 2011. I continue to learn every day and believe that to provide value to others, is to stay cutting edge and on top of my chosen craft.
For my free time, I enjoy the outdoors, running, addicted to snowboarding, surfing, traveling and I love to eat. Of course, I love my family like crazy and now enjoy most of my free time watching my little girl grow and spending time with my lovely wife who supports my dreams and passions.
My goal is to work with smart entrepreneurs & business professionals to provide actionable, useful processes & resources to help them increase sales, get more clients, be more productive and learn effective ways to work smarter and not harder.
I enjoy sharing ideas and to learn from others as well. Whenever given the opportunity, I take the time to learn something from everyone and anyone I encounter. Each person has an interesting story inside of them and has something to teach. Most of all, I truly enjoy helping others find their unique selling style and to sell to their highest potential and to find the most productive way to work so that they can “Get More Accomplished.”
