Service Description

I am a 20 year veteran of the technology industry. I have dealt with nearly everything: Sales, Phone and Email Support, Deskside Support, Server Maintenance, Middleware Management, Software Programming, Web Development, User Experience Design, 508 Usability Compliance, SOX Compliance, Software Architecture Design, Instructional Design, Project Management, C-Suite Management and much more!

Check my LinkedIn profile and you'll see I'm very reputable with many recommendations and a strong history of designing and implementing complex projects in organizations large and small.

But here's the thing... I love small businesses. I love the passion and drive of an entrepreneur and their team to get something done, and I know cost and value are often at odds. I can provide for you any technology or need you have and I will successfully orchestrate activities to constantly keep you appraised of progress with frequent check points for in-flight correction to ensure the job is done to your satisfaction.
