Silver Image Studios, General Technical Corporation
“Nelson and I have known each other since 1976 and have worked together on many ventures. He is extremely creative at problem solving, is thorough, and has an inexhaustible work ethic.
In the late 70s I developed one of the first Interactive Video Tape systems. The challenge was how to establish this system as a national product and how to best market it. Nelson provided his professional skills in developing a marketing strategy along with effective printed materials. He also assisted in finding the right marketing venue to highlight and introduce our product.
We went to the 1980 L.A. Video Show and Nelson’s expertise brought our interactive product to the attention of a national video producer.
I don’t know of any production, marketing or product development challenge that Nelson can’t solve and his solution will be excellent.”

“I was Musical Director for Bobby Vinton, 'Blood, Sweat & Tears', and many other national acts and was hired by Nelson to be the Musical Director of the 'Rat Pack Too Orchestra'. He was a novice at working with a large jazz orchestra, but within a matter of days, he became an expert. He quickly mastered the details of managing an act of more than 27 musicians, singers, technicians, and dozens of clients. I relied upon Nelson when I started my title business and later formed my 501(c)(3). He is our vice-president and a valued member of my Board of Directors.”

“Since meeting Nelson in 1998, he has played a critical role in the development of my business strategies. He applies his creativity to more than artistic corporate identities. I can count on him to develop creative solutions to all business challenges. His broad field of knowledge and experience makes him my number one go-to person when considering any new project. He has saved my companies thousands of dollars by serving as a sounding board to my ideas before implementation. I do not start a new company without the sage advice of Nelson.”

I have known many professionals in my business career and I have come to recognize Nelson as ‘a start-up guy’. He places tremendous emphasis upon planning and the development of business systems that make management easy.”
