Since 1996 I've building business technology solutions: network/systems engineer, coder, application architect, Director/CTO.
In 2013 I became a founding member of DiscussIO an on-line Qualitative Research tool, whipped their technology into shape and enabled the Sales and Business sides to deliver on their promises to customers.
In 2007 I joined Activist Central as Technology Director; I rebuilt our development team and implemented small batch SDLC policy which reduced release latency by 80% (12 to 2 weeks) for the same budget.
Circa 2005 I was Lead Developer on a Reverse LOS at Seattle Financial Group; we automated dozens of financial and regulatory processes for mortgage origination. This division was acquired by Bank of America.

I joined AC as a DevOps Enginner; my role grew over time and I assumed the Director position in 2008. I led a technology stabilisation initiative which brought our platform in-line with our customers needs. With this platform in place we were able to increase sales and turn the company profitable. We continue to innovate in the political activism space with automation features not found in competing products.
I founded, grew and currently manage this company which provides IT consulting services around Open Source technologies.
