As a formulator with over 30 years of professional experience I specialized in herbal products. My focus has been on wellness, longevity, energetics, and formulas for specific symptoms and ailments. I have developed liquid herbal products, as well as encapsulated formulas.
I worked at Yellow Emperor in Boston and Eugene, Oregon from 1982 to 2012. I purchased it in 1985 and sold it in 2012. It has been a leading herbal contract manufacturing company since its inception. During those 30 years, I served many companies by creating new products as well as improving upon their existing formulas.
Throughout three decades I helped bring to market, research and result-driven formulas based on European, Native American, Chinese, and Ayurvedic botanical healing traditions. Sourcing locally and globally, I sought high quality raw materials to create innovative, hand-crafted products. I directed all stages of manufacturing from development to marketplace, collaborating and co-creating with business owners and marketing directors.
As a Chief Formulator and Herbalist, I am respected by my colleagues throughout the natural products industry for pioneering the use of some of the world’s most important plant medicines. I am esteemed for promoting the highest standards of herbal manufacturing practices. I am responsible for introducing many popular formulations.
As a consultant, I prefer to work with small and medium sized businesses in the following ways:
1. Formulating new concept liquid herbal products.
2. Reviewing and improving existing products to enhance functionality. This includes providing science and backstory for any changes made.
3. Collaborating as a sounding board and advisor to help design products from concept to market.
