I’ve worked with online tools and technologies for over 15 years, shortly after the dawn of the Internet. I started working with computers in 1982 while in second grade.

I love a good challenge and finding the right tool for building successful businesses online.

I have experience with non-profits, government agencies, Fortune 500 companies and internet startups. This background allows me to help all types of companies and markets.

Feel free to contact me and let’s discuss how I might be able to help you use technology successfully.
