His particular expertise includes direct mail fundraising, annual giving program management, and management of contributions from integrated mail and online appeals.

He headed numerous award-winning telephone campaigns for nonprofit clients, including the National Galleries of Scotland, Symphony Hall Birmingham, and the South Bank Centre.
