I live on the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula, am married, have two (almost adult) sons and a dog, Stella.

My skills include:

  • Strategic Concepts – Instrumental in driving technology improvements and investments, looking for opportunities to not just be dependent on the technology, but also use it to our advantage. Constantly looked to for concept, creation and daily operation of company procedures and practices, Websites and overall IT architecture and support. I understand social networking and marketing concepts and bring a hands-on approach to projects.
  • Results – Managing support staff and projects for multiple physical locations, and am familiar with a wide variety of configurations, applications, processes and departmental functions.
  • Teaching - I have demonstrated the ability to prepare detailed training fit for the entry-level as well as the advanced user. Whatever the level, I've shown I have the ability to speak at the correct level to get the concepts across.
  • Entrepreneurial – Not only supporting employer ventures, but also have a consulting business allowing me the flexibility to work on projects outside of the normal scope of employment. I have a unique understanding of business processes and technology.
  • Innovative – Recognizes the need for upgrading obsolete practices and systems while planning for their replacement. When I see issues with current solutions, I use my knowledge of PHP and other online technologies to produce Web sites furthering goals.
    Conceptualized, designed and coded projects using PHP, CSS & JavaScript and mySQL databases, including:
    • Award-winning community information and interactive Web sites
    • A web-to-print solution for online calendars for publications
    • Conversion of complex Word and Excel document forms and processes into easy to use Web systems
    • Patent pending online and print newspaper classifieds system

I am always looking for good opportunities to expand my horizons. I have been told I'm very approchable, am detail oriented with strong convictions, loyal and have great communication skills.

I always tell clients anything is possible.
It just takes an idea and know-how.
