I'm the managing director at ASR team. Our Emmy Award® winning team offers video production, app development, and digital marketing solutions.

Introduction
About Me

I'm the managing director at Advance Systems & Research team. The company was founded on one principle: to help businesses overcome their innovation and resource challenges. Our business is centered around the concept of helping companies of all sizes treat technology as a tool, and not as the goal, for business. Our core expertise started with educational publishing and has expanded into other areas.

I'm skilled at working with, and through, teams. I understand people and how to motivate them, and I have more than 10 years of experience in the following areas:

Business: Leadership and management, entrepreneurship, strategy & development, implementing policies, set objectives, digital marketing strategies, and team direction.

Video: All aspects of video production: writing, shooting, editing, and directing. I specialize in educational, documentary, marketing, and corporate videos.

Digital Media: Management of mobile app development, interactive media, and e-Learning products from idea to completion for entrepreneurs and educational publishers.

Education: I teach and develop college courses in video production, cinema, public speaking, communications, and topics in media studies.
