Executive Profile

To obtain a position as Finance Director for a Democratic incumbent/candidate or a Democratic legislative organization on either a national, state or local level. Position may include Communications Director/Spokesperson responsibilities. I have over a decade of hands-on political experience, serving in the roles of Chief of Staff, Finance Director/Fundraiser, Communications Director/Press Secretary and Consultant/Strategist. My innovative and imaginative proficiency in political fundraising and consulting has been put to extensive use on behalf of the Democratic Party and Democratic/progressive incumbents and candidates from coast to coast, including numerous races for seats in the United States Senate and House of Representatives. I have also been featured as a political commentator and analyst on various New York City television stations as well as having been quoted in numerous articles in national and local political publications. My years of working in the political and financial sectors have afforded me substantial management experience, having successfully supervised staffs and overseen offices in both highly competitive arenas. I also have over twenty years of comprehensive experience investing and trading in the stock and bond markets of both the United States and international exchanges.
