Hi there!

... and welcome to my site.

Here you will discover tidbits of personal and professional trivia about me. If you want to contact me, I'd sure like to hear from you ... just click the envelope there to your left.

About Me

I've pretty much been a technology geek my entire life.   I was the highwater jeans wearing kid in high school that skipped lunch in favor of going to the computer science lab.   Having long since embraced my inner geek, I've actively worked in the ever-changing technology industry for nearly 20 years.

I'm also a big advocate of using technology on a personal level.   I'm currently working on a proof of concept project using home automation to combine technology with ease of use to create convenience and comfort.

Still a geek ... but I dress nicer now.

Over my 20 years in the information technology industry, I've gained valuable experience in creating, cultivating, and managing diverse business units in privately held companies to medium sized organizations. My expertise combines strategic guidance and critical thinking with an understanding that fostering inspiration in people will help achieve and sustain organizational excellence.

Things I Heed
Integrity

"Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest."
Mark Twain

Discipline

"We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit."
Aristotle

Courage

"No captain can do very wrong if he places his ship alongside that of the enemy."
Admiral Horatio Nelson

Things I've Said
As an operational leader, it is my job to make sound and objective decisions that not only meet organizational business goals but also promote ethical behavior and integrity, thus ensuring the deliverability of solid results for the benefit of clients and customers.
I am self-driven with a desire for perfection. When faced with a challenge, expect me to do what is appropriate, but not necessarily what is expected, orthodox, or conventional. For things that I don't know, expect me to have a knack for knowing to ask for where to look for the solution.
Expect generous amounts of loyalty and dedication directly proportional to the respect and responsibility I receive.
