I cut my teeth in technology with Blue Cross of California, starting as a data entry clerk and leaving as a project manager. While there I built a large document assembly system.
This lead to consulting projects with lawfirms and health insurance companies. Eventually, I expanded and have consulted for retail, manufacturing, hi tech, financial services, and other sectors.
I served as the CIO of a Financial Services company and now serve as Virtual-CIO for a few small businesses.
In 2002 I started pursuing writing - my early school passion. My first article, "Why Technologists Must Learn To Speak Business" led to a career column and eventually, my publishing deal with Pearson.
I still consult, write applications, write and perform music, and speak at conferences.
