Service Description

Over many years I have developed skills in people management, public speaking, writing, but especially in the trade show & event management sector. I have extensive dealings with businesses outside of North America, mainly in Latin America & Europe coordinating events & sourcing products & materials.

With certification in Xactimate Levels 1 & 2(working on Level 3) I can help you with your estimation needs. I am able to provide quick turn arounds for most projects - usually within 24 hours. I am always honing my Xactimate skills to stay current and be better able to fulfill the needs of you, the client.

My wife who assists with some projects draws on her years of management in the banking world. During that time she has developed excellent people management skills as well as excellent typing, computer & office management skills.

In addition our team includes Spanish-English & English-Spanish translators and researchers that specialize in sourcing products & materials in Latin American. Our translators are certified TOEFL English teachers who graduated from UMSNH in Morelia, Michoacan. Our portfolio includes translations in both business & technical writings.

My wife and I are originally from Toronto, Canada. We have traveled extensively & decided to make Morelia, Mexico our new home. As we are in our mid-30's my wife and I are ready, willing & able to take on practically any assignment we receive.
