For over twenty-six years I have been consistently successful in development, operations, and leadership roles. This multi-faceted experience enables me to form strong professional relationships based on shared experiences and mutual respect. I communicate well with people of all levels of technical understanding and consistently create positive interdepartmental relationships. Leadership and mentoring come naturally to me and I enjoy building productive teams while supporting individual growth. I am passionate about efficiency and reliability.

The study of non-IT subjects, such as creative thinking, critical thinking, and communication, has provided me with valuable management tools. Additionally, I am diligent about removing ego, personal bias, and industry fads from all technical discussions and decisions.

I am currently the Director of Technology for I am also available for consulting and speaking engagements in the areas of Online Retail, IT Management, and Server Side Development. logo
