Craig brings real world experience to his speaking, seminars and workshops having served in a number of different capacities in many different companies and as an entrepreneur/company owner. His business experiences along with his personal challenges such as walking rim to rim through the Grand Canyon twice, riding the Colorado River's largest rapids, being lost in the Kaibab National Forest and traveling extensively through five different continents along with many other experiences provide insights and lessons for his audiences.
Most recently Craig has undertaken speaking, writing and teaching on nine best practices for Small Business Success. Since entering the retirement age frame, he has also undertaken research, speaking and writing about the third quarter of life, the opportunities, challenges and transitions in the 60's and 70's.
Craig earned two BA Degrees in Communications and Political Science at the University of Utah. Being a voracious learner and researcher he is self-educated in many areas and is usually reading three or four books at one time (which drove his wife, a writer, crazy). He lived in Colombia South America for almost two years. He speaks, reads and writes Spanish.
Always learning and willing to share his knowledge Craig is passionate about changing and helping others who wish and are willing to change and become better individuals. Amid the 21st Century's chaos Craig is determined to be kind, loving and positive even though he likes a kick butt movie (like the Bourne films) now and then along with chick flicks and most other movie genres except horror films. Having retired from basketball early Craig still loves racquetball (when he's in shape), golfing, fly fishing, reading and goofing around with his mistress (his computer, according to his companion of forty two years). His companion, the former Renon Klossner (a great writer and artist in her own right), passed away on July 4, 2016 from pancreatic cancer. He has five married children, fifteen exceptional grandchildren, nine girls and six boys.
