How I can help you

I have been developing and leading companies and organizations in both the private and public sectors since 1983; with a concentration on business, business development, entertainment and tourism. 

I began consulting in 2008, leading to the development of Hundred Acre Consulting, a full-service Consulting Firm, specializing in Franchise and Business development and the Arts. 

As a Franchise Consulting Service, Hundred Acre Consulting assists you in making the best decision in buying a franchise, business or business opportunity. My overall mission is to build community and economic growth by helping families and individuals realize their dreams through business ownership.

As a Entertainment Producer, Packager & Consultant, Hundred Acre Consulting  provides presenters with an intuitive experience for local, regional, national and international events. My clients are individuals, theaters, performing art centers, music festivals, universities/colleges, corporations, associations, meetings and trade shows, charities and benefits, the hospitality industry, travel and leisure industry, and municipalities.

Between 1992 and 2015, I served as the Executive Director of two non-profits and participated on many local, regional, and national Boards as a Director. Also during that time period, I produced and promoted over 1500 musical and theatrical performances and 60 exhibits of art and mixed media.
