||Focus on finding new leaders in my clubs. I was a Toastmaster for 2 years before I was told about the Leadership Manual. I now have a passion for the leadership track and want all my clubs to understand that Division D is the place to develop new leaders.
Biography: I was born and raised in Michigan, took my first job in Management with US Steel in Youngstown Ohio. After three years in Houston working for NL Industries I was transferred to Brea, CA where I've spent most of my time; except for a three year stint in Tulsa, OK running a gas compression company.
I now work as an Investment Advisor with Transamerica in Orange, CA. I live in Yorba Linda. When I'm not working I love to play golf, chess, read and (of course) Toastmasters.
In the past two years as an Area Director in Division D I have learned more about speaking, leadership and effective "Toastmastering" than at any other time. I am honored to be Division Director and hope to continue our record of success in Division D.
