Professional Overview

For over a decade I have been involved in the direction of web and business technologies covering a wide range of unique interests. I immediately found a passion for technology after discovering my first 286 machine in 1992 and logging-on on to BBS systems and the classic AOL interfaces at a blazing 2400bps. As a web professional it has been an amazing journey to watch the internet evolve right before my eyes and I have developed a great interest in watching online technology trends and its effect on end-users, business and society.
