How did you get started in the business?
I’ve been in computer and networking for 20 years and have worked on many network and phone systems during that time.

Technology is always changing, so you must stay ahead of everyone and keep up to date with all that is being offered today while also looking toward the future at how we can advance our offerings.

I get to work with many different people and companies. It is a great pleasure to help those individuals and businesses with their goals and expectations.
Tell us a little about your family.
I’m a single dad with one daughter who is a sophomore in high school. I enjoy watching her play golf tournaments, especially when we get to travel around to different courses for tournaments in the summer months.
What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
The day my daughter was born. It created a whole different meaning for my life, and changed what I once thought was important.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Most of my days off are spent on the golf course! If I’m not cheering on my daughter or playing a round myself, I’m probably riding my bicycle on the many trails in town.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
I sang in three different weddings back in the day when I first got out of college.
