RALPH CISSNE

My father was an Air Force officer. I inherited the hairstyle, a commitment to be of service and a sense of humor. Growing up in Oklahoma I learned the value of hard work and the satisfaction of helping friends and neighbors. My father and mother were extraordinary characters whose parents came to the heartland as pioneers filled with the purpose and resolve of creating a better life. Morgan was my mother’s maiden name and our work honors the collective spirit of my family and how I came to be who I am.

As someone who chose creativity as my life’s work, I acknowledge the contributions of many mentors: my family and teachers, friends and business associates and my son. Early on I learned valuable lessons from Scouting, the love of sports and ultimately golf, the business in which I worked during high school and college. Through the years I’ve had the privilege of representing many innovative companies, large and small, – and individual artists – helping tell their stories and manifesting their vision into the reality of success.

We look forward to discussing the possibilities for your business or career.
