Some people say I over analyze things. I say they criticize too much, but their reply is that I like to debate everything. Now I cannot argue that.
So far I have visited 92 cities in 7 countries. You can see a map of my travels.
While growing up on a Texas farm I was always trying to understand how things work and why they operate the way they did. I constantly sought to find efficiencies and to improve the way I worked. I remember my grandfather telling me that only ‘lazy’ people try to optimize their workload, but now I know I was only trying to ‘Get Things Done’. Living in a small community did not limit me, nor my ability to learn. I gained an interest in wireless communications around 12 years old with Amateur Radio and by the early 1990’s I was sending emails from a wireless console using packet radio while driving in our truck. I also learned that I could request any book in the country through the InterLibrary Loan. It was like a Google search by postal mail, but it gave me a passion for reading and learning that I still enjoy to this day. Recently I was the Director of Marketing for PrivaSign (a web-based electronic signature service) and currently the Mgr of Technical Sales for American Express Business Travel. Some of my favorite projects have been implementing an open-source VOIP PBX, researching and publishing articles on every US and State electronic signature law , and most of all I enjoy growing a concept into a full featured service. Here's my Online Resume in case you like structured presentations.
