For over 17 years, I've been making ideas come to fruition. From concept to completion, overcoming technical, financial, and resource barriers, my creations most always involve a good team, each with their own specialty, and good leadership. I thrive in friendly team environments that push the boundaries of technology and work with companies that embrace the balance of work and life.
During these last years, I've honed my business development skills to be able to launch SaaS products in a specific industry where I have industry contacts. The "Direct Sales" industry focuses on people who who are independent consultants and sell a company's products directly to the public. Below are some examples of some of my work.

- Dozens of Monetized Websites
After college, I got my MCSE and went to work for a company called First Point Communications which later became Enron Broadband Services. I received my Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Speech Communication from Portland State University and studied mass communication and journalism.
11 Years Of eCommerce Development
From news sites, to web apps, to full-blown 14,000-product catalogs synchronizing brick-and-mortar businesses with their ecommerce initiative, my experience in the web asset and product lifecycle allows me to take most any project from concept to completion. I love working with teams. I have a lot to offer my teammates and, in turn, I love learning new skills or new ways to do existing skills. I love deadlines and the feeling of a completed project.
After Enron went down spectacularly, I worked for Cisco Systems where I learned advanced networking. I then spent 11 years learning eCommerce web development, monetization, and conversion marketing.
