how i work
experience + collaboration
When you hire me, you're going to be working with me directly—from the beginning of our engagement until sign-off—and not with an offshored contractor. That means that you won't be explaining your problems to a salesperson who will then try to convey the scope to his developers.
Instead, we'll be working collaboratively to determine your most critical business needs and the bottlenecks that may be slowing you down.
knowledge + solutions
I'm a pro, and when you hire me, you're hiring my depth of knowledge and experience. I've built a solid track record of delivering complex, mission-critical browser-based applications and solutions.
I'm particularly at home working with small- to medium-sized clients who need a multifaceted technologist who can deliver results across the enterprise—and rapidly solve a wide range of problems.
And since there's no middleman—no sales team doing the initial call I can keep my overhead and rates reasonable, and deliver the most bang for the buck for my clients.
I deliver peace of mind
I'm focused on improving efficiency, streamlining processes, eliminating paper, and enabling better quality control through the use of Microsoft technologies.
In addition, I deliver peace of mind. I create comprehensive backup plans with high security and automatic failover to support high availability—and ensure that my clients are confident that their data and systems will be available when they need them.

wide range of solutions
Finally, I work effectively as both a long-term consultant and as an emergency troubleshooter who comes in when my client's back may be up against the wall—and when they need something that will fix a critical problem. Fast.
I've delivered a wide range of solutions—including Custom Application Development, Backend Databases, Content Management Systems, User Management Systems, Database Administration, and Query Optimization—for clients as diverse as chemical manufacturing, real estate, golf cart rentals, and fine artists.
I began my relationship with one long-term client by coming in during an emergency—a top-to-bottom rebuild of the unstructured, undocumented legacy systems after the departure of their previous technologist. I analyzed the situation and developed a roadmap to transition all applications to robust, scalable, centrally managed web-based technologies.
Here are a few highlighted applications across a number of my clients.
- Enabled centralized application management with all updates pushed out via the browser.

more than "just" a consultant
I've been fascinated by technology since I was in high school—and I've been very fortunate to have been able to utilize my core passion to build solutions that have dramatically improved my clients’ business operations, efficiency, and competitiveness. After early career work in a number of technical positions, I founded my own company, and have been working with many long-term clients for well over a decade.
I'm committed to helping my clients solve their most pressing business problems—and reach their short- and long-term business goals. To accomplish this, I leverage both my deep technology expertise as a .NET full-stack architect / engineer / analyst and my superior communication and interpersonal skills. This approach has ensured that I'm seen as much more than "just" a consultant. I'm happy to say that I've become a true partner in my client's success—and a trusted resource to resolve even the most challenging or complex issues.
Beyond my professional life
I’m a long time fitness enthusiast, and participated in many intense, 100 mile ultra endurance mountain biking events. My interest in fitness led directly to my creating an online fitness log product that has been utilized by a number of companies to help track employee fitness challenges.
I also play guitar, enjoy hiking and camping, and follow a number of motor racing events including Motocross, Supercross, and Formula 1.
