Service Description

I am a hardcore geek that lives and plays with the latest technology. Over my 30 year career with companies such as Hewlett Packard and Hitachi I have been involved in every aspect of commercial and consumer technology including computers, storage systems, networks, imaging technology, and archival systems. I have traveled the world for these companies to help promote and explain the benefits of these systems to others through both live presentations and technical documents that I have crafted. I have extensive experience with alternative energy technologies such as Solar and Wind power systems and write daily for many industry blogs and websites. Some of my other interests including music, movies, plays, and anything to do with the outdoors. I spend a lot of time at the shore, and actually grew up on the bay in New Jersey. I am a father of two wonderful children and have had a great time raising and educating them with my wife of 25 years. This journey has been the most rewarding and richest adventure of my life.
