Greetings and welcome. I wanted to take a moment and give you a bit of background on me and why I am here. I am a US NAVY Veteran. I got my start in computers in 1975/1976 and very early on saw the potential for these machines in our lives. It’s amazing how far they’ve come from the days when we carried paper tape and then cassettes for data storage. Now that and more fits on a simple USB stick.
The power of the web like the computer systems amazed me when it was first unleashed to the public. I can remember sitting in my office at Pixar Animation Studios (when we were still named PIXAR) and thinking…this thing called a browser has some potential, one day people will use this like they use a newspaper. In fact, this will probably replace newspapers.
Little did I know at the time how powerful of a thought that really was. About a year later things began to take off and the rest is history in the making as the web continues to evolve into an information resource we literally depend on day in and day out to get our news, information, research and entertainment. Some of us use the web for food, news, TV listings, etc. It’s going to continue to evolve and the minds who are locked in places like Cupertino, Redmond, Stockholm and other places will continue to develop this thing known as the Internet until we’re all on one large Intranet working and collaborating to make Earth a better place for all of mankind.
I teach a class on Internet Marketing and Website Optimization as well as consult with businesses on a number of facets of doing business on the Internet. From the selection of technology used in that business, to the actual design and implementation of said technology into their business, the launching of said business, and the generation of revenue as a result of increased exposure to the ideal marketplace.
I am self-taught in everything that I know in computers and technology. I learned early on to excel in this area of work it’s fun to learn on your own. That way you learn a lot about everything vs. just what they teach you from a book. I am happy to see technology evolve the way that it has, but it’s literally about 20 years behind where it should be at this point. Too many companies doing too many things and lacking focus, but that’s a discussion for the blog
Thanks for taking the time to drop in and read more about me. I look forward to serving your needs however we can to make your Internet Life easier.

Was responsible for constant operation of over 350 macintosh computer systems used throughout the production of the movie Toy Story, in areas ranging from sound editing to textures creation, to animation testing, finance, customer support and more. I also had the distinct honor of being called upon by Steve Jobs to execute specific things for him over the 6 years I was with PIXAR. Additionally I had the honor of spending much time with him simply talking about technology, life and what was in store for many over time. I consider that time sacred and a true honor of being in the right place at the right time.
