A Geek, With a Wife, Two Kids and a Dog


My entire life has been about technology. I remember being amazed as a kid when I saw War Games in the theater, and when presented with an all-important choice at the age of 10 whether I preferred a Coleco Vision or a Commodore 64… I chose the computer. By age 11, I was taking computer programming courses at the local college. From that moment forward, my direction in life was chosen - technology would be my life in some shape or form.


As an adult, I have succeeded in living and breathing technology. After leaving high school, I got a job doing computer engraving for a Trophy & Awards Company. While out on leave due to injury, I took advantage of my time off to teach myself HTML. This being 1993, I loved being able to create websites at a time when people would shoot me awkward glances upon mentioning the word “Internet”. Though I spent most of my school life being called a nerd anyway, geek was not common yet. But now, I am a proud GEEK!


I never looked back, and along the way I took a few adventures, some detours, such as working as a traveling barista and making Cheeseburgers in Paradise at Margaritaville. I travelled through America, explored, and had many an adventure. And outside of kids and family, I have never loved anything more than technology, and a part of me will always be that little kid playing Zork on his Commodore 64, tapped into a world of infinite possibilities.


Citrix Technologies were always my true calling, and my professional focus for the last 17 years. From the moment I was exposed to Citrix, I have been deeply involved on the backend and front-end of the technology in all aspects. I specialize in application and desktop delivery, and have crafted my career around that expertise. Today, I consult with leading brands and corporations in the world, bringing a finely-tuned technical expertise to deliver more than 460 projects based on Citrix, Microsoft, VMware, and web applications to deliver expert results on time and within budget.


Interests
Avid fan of Father/Daughter Epic Star Wars Lego Building Events on the weekend
Spending quiet weekends with my family
Painstakingly making my family pose for photos
Reading my daughter bed time stories (I do voices and reflections, bed time stories can be epic events)
My son and daughter are my greatest inspiration
All of my interests revolve around creating memories that my kids will remember for the rest of their lives
I believe in positivity and being positive towards others and teaching my children the same.
I am also a fan of "paying it forward" and doing random acts of kindness for others.
