Over my 20+ year career I have been involved in virtually every aspect of IT and software development; From Budgeting and Vision through Planning, Design, and Development. I have had the pleasure to work for several fortune 500 companies as well as startup organizations and learned from their mistakes and successes along the way.
Associations and Achievements:
I hold a Masters degree in Computer Science and Distributed Systems from Webster University and a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from Central Missouri State University. I have also held and maintained various security clearances for my work on government projects. In the Agile space I have completed my Scrum Master (CSM), Product Owner (CSPO) and Most recently I scrum professional (CSP) certifications.
I was married in October 1993 to my wife, Lisa. We enjoy traveling and spending time with our two golden retrievers. When time permits I play racquetball and enjoy quiet time cycling. Some of my other passions include working with other leaders in the community to stay sharp on the latest trends in technology. I also enjoy working with my hands on various household projects.
