I started off my professional career as a Geologist. Following the massive downturn in the Oil & Gas industry in late 1985, I was asked to run a Gubernatorial race in 1986. At the conclusion of campaign I decided to take advantage of a unique situation and I entered the world of high tech where I discovered my love of technology. The first 5 years I aided in Sales & Marketing while the next 10 I spent managing R&D. I then moved on to another high tech firm where I established and managed their global Competitive Intelligence program for the next 10 years. They were acquired by an even larger company and I found myself managing Competitive Intelligence for them for a period of 4 years. I then struck out and joined IBM where I am today. I work on a global scale and help salespeople and resellers understand complex technology. Throughout my adult work career I have had a strong desire to help others. This culminated with my participation on the Board Of Directors for Dragon Master Foundation (http://www.dragonmasterfoundation.org). I have been married for 35 years to my best friend. We have two wonderful boys who have each started their own families.
