What’s my story?  I’m now a grizzled veteran of IT marketing and public relations with over 20 years on the technology front lines deep in the high-tech trenches. I am a Pragmatic Marketing, Inc. certified professional, published author, and award winning public speaker occasionally taking selected consultative incursions.

After an exhaustive Federal IT boot camp with the U.S. Department of Labor managing their legacy data migration, I took over as the chief technologist for User Technology Associates.  From that beachhead I followed the battle lines of Internet integration to become executive director with USWeb and ultimately vice president of professional services at the nefarious marchFIRST juggernaut.  There I spearheaded large scale e-commerce skirmishes with allies like United Airlines, America Online, Citicorp and Harley-Davidson.

When the dust of the bubble had finally settled, I found myself as a mercenary deeply entrenched in software marketing and technology product management with several European start-ups combating network security and data management.  In that service I have been honored with published victories in periodicals like PC Magazine, Washington Technology, Government Computer News, iMedia, MediaPost, Adotas, and Federal Computer Weekly.
