I first discovered my passion for programming computers in high school.
In college I worked at the Computique computer store chain selling Macs, Compaqs, Osbournes and software. After about a year I took over managing school district accounts in Los Angeles and Orange County.
My career took off working for AST Research, a top PC manufacturer, in service and support. I started their online support service for downloading software updates, and expanded that to 20 systems worldwide. My role was writing software to customize the online service and distributing updates, also programming the call routing systems and internal network software.
Building on the passion for online services, two coworkers and I co-founded TeleGrafix Communications, which made a graphical user interface for any text based system. We gained a large market share, then the World Wide Web came along and disrupted the marketplace.
After TeleGrafix, I started a consulting business Imagenuity, creating websites and building & maintaining servers for internet providers and PC networks. Seeing the promise of mobile devices, I began making iOS and Android apps for myself and clients using the Cordova framework, which led to my participation in the Microsoft Accelerator as the app developer for Novi Security, one of the participating startups.
Currently located near Seattle, Washington and enjoying the terrific hiking and mountain biking the Pacific Northwest offers.
