i started consulting in 1990 in the heady days of dos workstations, command line interfaces and novell servers. i have worked continuously since then for a wide range of satisfied clients. after allowing me to advise on the appropriate solutions for their needs most of my clientele have stayed with me for many years
i know that technology tends to get more in the way than become an asset. technology for its own sake is seldom rewarded. in other words define your needs and target the technology to fulfill them
to me, my customers aren�t just people who invest in the my talent and skills; i look at them more as partners in our mutual growth. the aim with each project, correspondingly, is to understand each other�s abilities and needs, in order to create better long-term relationships.
i was born in manhattan and raised in queens new york. after trying the job market in new york i followed some sage advise and went as far west as i could. i lived in the valley and then orange county for many years, working for aerospace firms and other military based companies. while i was working for these companies i started playing with early computers. my first computer was actually a game console, but all you had to do was add a keyboard and a cassette tape drive and voila, a crude computer system.
in the mid eighties i was actually paid to work with computers, writing procedures and using auto-cad creating diagrams and drawings to illuminate the work. officially retired from that business to strike out on my own in 1990.
