I started programming and my first business at 15 offering web & software development services as I learned and grew with the web in the late-90s and later went on to study Law at the University of Michigan. During my tenure there, I continued to grow my business and technology knowledge by coding the midnight oil, so to speak. :o) From the moment that I began my career I've been on the Microsoft stack, from classic ASP I soon became an evangelist for the then-fledgling .Net Framework for the US Department of Defense back in 2000. Since then, I've tried to remain on the cutting edge until today, even [login to view URL] on ASP.Net Core 3 on the very day that it came out. Write me and I'll be more than happy to share it. I began my consulting career in 1997 and have worked with organizations the likes of the US Department of Defense, SC Department of Transportation, eBay, State Farm Insurance, Verizon, GTE, and many more. I formed [login to view URL] in 2005 and currently reside in Chicago, Ecuador, or Praga depending on when you catch me. As a globetrotting entrepreneur, I continue to run and expand [login to view URL] and travel fairly frequently to meet with clients around the world, because business – even in the digital age – is still about personally building and nurturing relationships. In 2018, I began technical writing, and blogging for several prestigious companies and am presently working on my first book.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” — Theodore Roosevelt
