The Obligatory Mini Bio

I was an early personal computing enthusiast from the time I first saw an Apple II in a small hobbyist shop in 1979.  It was a FORTRAN IV programming course the next year at a local community college that made me realize my initial enthusiasm was more than adolescent tech lust; it was a genuine desire to pursue software development as a career path.  Since 1993, I have worked with organizations at wildly different technology maturity levels – a small franchising operation just starting an explosive national growth spurt, an older commercial software company that was struggling to re-make itself in the face of rapid market changes and out-of-date infrastructure, and several well-established software and web-based enterprises in the Fortune 500.  Currently, I reside in the Richmond, Virginia, area where I am developing a new software-as-a-service application called iSkedz.
