The Hogtrails Difference


Since 1984 I have been creating and implementing strategic acquisition initiatives for public, private companies and private equity firms. Using my intuitive communication skills to source investment opportunities while building relationships for acquisition of non-auction assets and operating companies as add-ons to or formation of new platforms.

Pleasantly tenacious, I have created over a billion dollars in value for clients. I have never seen a business/industry that I could not figure out quickly, while creating valuable relationships leading to accretive transactions.

About Me


Started the business on $114 investment and borrowed office furniture with no previous experience, after being a Registered Representative retail stockbroker for J.C. Bradford & Co. in Louisville, KY. I put my faith in my “innate ability” to figure it out.

While I have a BA in Marketing and Business from the University of Kentucky, most valuable is my lifetime of business experience.

I have always been guided by a moral compass, never originating a transaction in which I would be unwilling to put my own money at risk. Growing up in rural Kentucky, Hogtrails just seemed a natural fit.

I am an internationally recognized author and award winning mental health advocate, my greatest accomplishment.
