Over the years of my career, I have worn many hats and I have gone down many different paths, but they are mostly concentrated around 3 central areas, Creative, Technology & Sales.
I am Microsoft Certified and a self proclaimed Mac Guru, a technology professional with expertise in consumer electronics, personal computing, networks, and small business computing. I have experience in the management of IT functions and web site support for large corporations.
I build and maintain websites and offer Webmaster services, My entire career has been a combination of both Creative and Technical. I am a unique candidate due to the fact I have many skill sets
Let’s talk and see where it goes.
As the saying goes, you should have a job that you enjoy because then it is not a job. Looking at my list over the years you can see that there has been a mix of hard work, but overall… Fun. I enjoy what I do and I enjoy helping others to achieve their personal goals, whether it is building a site to tell their story or fixing a tech issue to closing a sale.
Lets have some fun, and change some lives.
