I am an experienced entrepreneur and systems architect who has worked for or founded a variety of high growth service and infrastructure companies.
My passion is connecting people to the tools and services they need to express their unique vision, and ensuring that their relationship with those tools improves and remains empowering over time.
As the Pacific Rim Development Program Manager for WAM!NET Inc, I helped grow the company from just 100 employees in the Twin Cities to a global presence in four countries with $1.5 Billion in contracted revenue. In that role I served a the senior systems architect, a software developer, a network engineer, and the guy who went to businesses to install wires and plug in our network access devices. Throughout, I was committed to the success of our clients, and ensuring that WAM!NET was a major asset in our client’s portfolios.
Before that, as a Quality Assurance Lead for LaserMaster Inc, I helped create the Desktop Publishing Revolution which has made printers a common occurrence in every home and office. I hope that the internet will someday become as convenient and easy to use as printing a letter is today.
I am currently the owner of Transformative Business Group, LLC, an infrastructure and web services company that specializes in the improvement of corporate processes and service delivery via the internet, and I consult with clients on a daily basis to help them identify and achieve their preferred online futures.
And I just think that artists and small startups should not have to deal with all the misery and confusion that can be associated with creating a website or a webstore. As someone who helped create this industry, I am proud of what has happened with desktop publishing and the highspeed internet, but it remains as obfuscated and inaccessible as printing was back in the 80’s.
I think it’s time for another revolution. And until that happens, I want to do what I can to help make the web an empowering and useful tool for you.
