About GMoney

A skilled leader, editor, and entrepreneur, I am in the process of selling the media and event business that I founded and operated for 18 years. I look for a place where I can bring my talents and experience to create great content. My many years in media have been marked by great success and personal growth, giving me the ability to create a team, staff up creative talent, communicate a message, and accomplish challenging tasks. I possess the rare mix of a strong business sense (MBA from NYU) and editorial craftsmanship. Led by a positive outlook, I work best leading or being part of a strong team with a no-nonsense, entrepreneurial spirit, always in search of the next big idea. Connecting people through shared experiences, storytelling, and compelling design are important parts of my success.
