I love that people have called me a renaissance man. It matches, exactly, the person I want to be and that I hope I am. In a nutshell, I love new experiences, diversity, and challenges (though more intellectual than physical).

I've had an extraordinary career in my chosen profession of computer science that has ranged, and still does, from software engineer to CIO/CTO/VP and included helping to start/expand seven companies, public speaking, working in a multitude of sectors, and living overseas twice (Japan and Australia).

I am an award winning author with one historical fiction novel, two science fiction novels, and a slew of non-fiction books. I have four advanced degrees (Computer Science [minor in philosophy], Engineering Management, Space Studies, and Creative Writing. And, possibly most important, have raised four wonderful kids.
