I'm your point of contact person. My background is extensive. I've been engaged in independent research in economic development for more than 35 years. My clients have ranged from pre-startups to the world's largest companies, governments, economic development groups, universities and non-profits.

My specialty is business incubation. I own the oldest business incubator in Texas, which I started entirely without grants, donations, public funding, gifts or contributions, just to demonstrate it could be done and to fulfill a need in Houston

Please don't think I'm being immodest when I tell you my clients have won virtually every award for business growth in Houston, some nationally and some, even internationally and they continue to do so today.

I also founded the first Womens Business Center in the nation, again to fulfill a need for Houston. In a 5 year period 6 women were honored as "Women of Excellence" by the prestigious and powerful Federation of Houston Professional Women.

I've been in Houston since the late 60's. Some of my client relationships have lasted decades because I consistently provide exceptional value.
