To look at a business from 30,000 feet and pick up the patterns. To create easily understood financials—budgets, projections, and business plans. To give you the tools to succeed and exceed.

I started out as a fashion designer. Won a scholarship to a prestigious design school in Paris. Came back and was a successful designer for a dozen years.

Got bored and burnt out.

Looked around and saw that everyone creative in NY had an agent–not fashion designers.

Started Project Solvers to rep designers and other freelancers in the apparel industry. Bootstrapped it with money from friends and family.

Grew the business into a multi-million-dollar company and created a $75 million niche industry.

Implemented my exit strategy, sold and moved on.

Now I’ve merged what I love—food, working with entrepreneurs and building businesses—into a successful consulting company.

When I started Project Solvers, I was like you—doing almost anything, like taking out the garbage to avoid looking at my financials.

Excel was what happened when you did something really well.

Sound familiar?

Let’s put a stop to that.

Here’s how I can help you.
