Hello! I'd like to introduce myself as an American-born consultant on business management and economic development with international experience in Western and Eastern Europe and Asia, especially India.
My interest in HumanScience arises from 33 years of work for The Mother's Service Society, a social science research institute based in Pondicherry, South India. The Society is applying the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother to research in the fields of economic and social development, management, psychology, and education. These activites include theoretical research on social development, organizational theory and money as well as studies for major corporations and business associations, international organizations, and national governments.
From 1989 to 1994 I served as Member Secretary of the International Commission on Peace and Food International Commission on Peace & Food (ICPF). In 1995, I helped establish the International Center for Peace and Development in Napa, California, as a the successor organization to continue the work of the Commission.
I am also a Fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science since 1994 and appointed Chairman of the Academy’s Standing Committee on Peace and Development and a member of the Board of Trustees since 2004.
I'm also a management consultant and partner since 1987 in Mira International, a consulting firm based in Napa, California providing management guidance to firms in a wide range of industries in the USA, Europe and India. My work includes assignments for small, medium and large corporations on strategies to elevate corporate values, accelerate growth, and improve profitability. I am co-author of two books on the process of corporate growth: The Vital Difference: Unleashing the Powers of Sustained Corporate Success, and The Vital Corporation: How American Companies Large and Small Double Profits in Two Years or Less.
