I grew up with computers as a part of my everyday life, using them from the age of 8 through today. Over the past two decades, I've built a couple successful internet companies (Online payment processing company pre-PayPal, and a Web Hosting / Internet Services provider). Unfortunately, my health failed in 2013 with multiple pulmonary embolisms, causing me to spend most of that year watching the world go by through a hospital window. After selling my companies, I spent a few years recuperating and dealing with my new, less tolerant body. Now I consult for mid-sized businesses/corporations, providing automation technology to their business and marketing systems. I specialize in designing and developing automated information systems to optimize business and marketing operations. This boils down to turning data into intelligence, and creating "digital minions" as I call them. Small tasks that run 24/7 to analyze data, watch for conditions, and improve the quality of daily business life.

As a founding member, I helped create and run the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.

President

Utilizing a sweetheart deal with then then upstart Above.net. I quickly pivoted and built up my infrastructure located in a brand new data center located across the street for MAE-East in Vienna, VA. This was the centerpoint for all internet traffic on the east coast and the primary hub where all cross-country traffic would route through. With internet speeds unmatched in the industry and below market pricing, I successfully grew a web hosting business to tens of thousands of clients.

President

Designed and ran an online payment processor similar to PayPal. Had very strong month over month growth until... PayPal entered the market and gave away the service for free... Of course the free service ended once all the players left or went out of business. Luckily, I could pivot my infrastructure into other arenas.
