Business Colleagues

For thirty years, I worked in the restaurant, hotel and entertainment industries. Much of that time I was involved in these through franchising. I am proud of what I was able to do: the teams I created and led, the companies I helped form and grow and all the terrific people I met along the way at the International Franchise Association, Taco Bell, The Walt Disney Company, Harrah's and other places.

The ALS diagnosis has given me the opportunity to focus my energy in a fundamentally different way: participating in the fight to find the cause and cure for a dreadful disease. My success in business relied heavily on the help of the very talented people I have known. As has been the case throughout my business life, I need your help in meeting the goal of beating ALS and I thank you for joining with me in this, the most important project of my life.
