About Us

A Message from the CEO . . . 



I am ecstatic to be helping clients become outstanding presenters.  The experience I draw on and the tools I use come from three different professional experiences: my first career as an actor, my work as a sales manager, and my experience as an MBA student and as a finance professional.



First Career as an Actor

I studied acting as an undergraduate; I worked with various professional theaters and then spent several years in Los Angeles as a working actor.  Acting skills such as vocal projection, use of body language, and subtle emotional expression are all vital parts of effective presentations.  I draw on my acting background to help clients genuinely relate to the words of their speech and portray the appropriate level of energy.

Work as a Sales Manager


During the later years of my acting career, I worked as a sales manager to support my acting.  Selling came naturally to me because of the interest in communication I had developed as an actor.  Being a sales manager allowed me to teach acting concepts that would serve a business purpose, and I taught dozens of employees to use presentation skills to be successful in their careers.


MBA and Work in Finance


I eventually left the struggling actor career behind and went to the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University; after which, I worked in asset management.  In addition to the business acumen and financial expertise that I gained, I came to better understand the values of a more traditional corporate environment.  I built APCC on the premise that presentation consulting will only be effective if the consultant understands the subtleties and nuance of the client's working environment. 

I welcome the opportunity to work with you and help you unleash your potential as an outstanding presenter.
