Dec 2004 - Present

Chief Information Officer / Chief Security Officer

EvriChart, Inc.

I spearheaded development of our inventory, workflow, imaging processing and backend customer storage systems, in addition to designing our customer facing portal for secure transfer of medical information.  Our team of software developers and database architects have generated over 3M lines of source code, primarily in PHP and Java.  I designed and wrote a high-availability backend storage system with multiple redundant servers and database replication to ensure that our data is always available. We linked our five facilities and a colocated datacenter together across four states.  As Chief Security Officer I am also responsible for ensuring the security of our network and data, along with setting our security policy and HIPAA/HITECH policy. I've made several breakthroughs in new ways of managing and securing medical data resulting in three pending patent applications.

Jun 2004 - Dec 2004

Systems Consultant

The Maro Group

Companies in town were begging me to strike out on my own as a systems consultant, so I did and it was a great experience.  I provided technical support for two television stations, Roy Nichols' office of Nichols Research, United Circuits and several physicians and dental offices in town among others. I soon realized that being an independent triage consultant eliminated the possibility of vacations and decided to jump on board full time with one of my customers, EvriChart, Inc.

As Dir. of System Services I more than tripled monthly revenues in the department in under one year.
