Born in a small blue collar town in Western Pennsylvania, Skip has lived a life full of opportunities of a lifetime at full throttle, following his maybe wrong but never in doubt philosophy. A life full of extraordinary successes, devastating tragedies, and spectacular mistakes and failures. All of which he owns and from which he has learned many valuable lessons. Both personally and professionally.
Skip was raised by his figurative “grandmother” on $12.50 per month of child support after his parents’ third and final divorce to and from each other. He was the first person from his small town to graduate from an Ivy League college, where he excelled at both football and track as a linebacker and javelin thrower. He then went on to earn an MBA. He paid for his undergraduate and graduate educations by working as a construction laborer during the summers and through school loans all of which he repaid before their due dates.
Skip had an accomplished career, building and managing with three partners a $750 million venture capital company during which time he helped numerous entrepreneurs and their employees realize their personal, professional and financial dreams. He then became the CEO of an essentially bankrupt medical device company, pioneering new medical science and commercializing a revolutionary new device for the treatment of drug resistant epilepsy and severe depression, which improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and created over $1 billion in shareholder value.
Skip has faced and overcome several unimaginable personal and professional tragedies including his mother’s lifelong battle with addiction demons and her ultimate suicide, and the recent sudden death of his 32 year old veterinarian daughter. In 2006, completely false options backdating allegations destroyed his career, reputation and net worth and took away his identity, dreams and opportunity of a lifetime to improve the lives of others. Until he decided to write "Mastering You from the Inside Out" in which he shares everything he knows now that he wishes he knew then, and a proven formula and the tools to for you to survive and thrive personally and professionally regardless of what life throws at you, including Covid 19.
Skip holds the distinction of receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Epilepsy Foundation while simultaneously being labeled as “the most combative CEO in America" by a Wall Street TV personality.
