About Me

 I started my career in IT & development in the early 90's. While in high school, I was given the opportunity to work with a local dial up ISP and helped them streamline their services.

During my attendance at Brookdale for a BS in computer science I was offered a position with a large national marketing company focusing on data management in large scale database environments.

I enjoyed working with a team but had ambitions of my own and subsequently left this 10 year position to work on various business ventures, successfully starting and eventually selling my own IT businesses.

I was quickly recognized as a leader in my field with a wide range of knowledge and experience culminating in a speaking engagement on Hyper-V security and management at Microsoft Tech Ready 2015.

This background has given me a unique combination of experiences that includes high level business transactions and managing large scale operations but also technical hands-on experience with development, hardware and network design of mission-critical systems, deployments and operations.
