My Osage Allottee Grandparent’s:

I have thought long and hard about what is happening at the Nation today.

There are so many issues that require leadership and a change.

In this position, I would be required to work with the Principal Chief of the Osage Nation.  The Principal Chief will set the tribal goals and I will assist in whatever manner to see these goals are carried out.  I hope to be a key part of the Principal Chief’s management structure and I will serve the tribe as I am afforded in whatever opportunity or requirement. 

I will work diligently with the Principal Chief and the Osage Congress.

I bring a number of years of management expertise, and six years were running three tribes in top senior management.

I bring more expertise and skills in administration, contracting, accounting and Financial Statements, gaming, fund generation, investments, IT skills, IT platform development, economic development, business start-ups, research, and related skills.

Highest funded grant was for $28,000,000

My professional experience includes over 21 years’ experience in economic development, tribal government/business, industrial development, casino development, organizational development, accounting systems, and job-creation as a Tribal Chairman, CEO, CFO, Executive Director/Tribal Manager, and owner of a small company.
