Craig retired from Intel Corporation after 25 years to focus on the marketplace area. He served as the Intel Corporate Financial Systems Controller, and a Product Manager for $2B line of products and other roles… He has a Masters in International Business from Thunderbird.

He started the Intel Cross-Faith ERG with 7 Faith ERGs – Atheist, Bahai, Christian, Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Sikh. This resulted in Intel winning the Gold Metal United Nations award for Religious Inclusion, with Intel ranked #1 in the world in this area.


The Courageous Third vision was created after a year of prayer which culminated in the summer of 2021.  The vision has been bathed in prayer since then, and the specific high-level strategy was architected jointly with many people during the summer of 2023.


His expansive network includes many Fortune 100 Corporate Christian leaders. He is a sought-after speaker at conferences and has been featured on the radio and podcasts. Craig is also a leader in the Global 2033 movement seeking for all to have the ability to know the love of God by the year 2033.
