Overseeing the technical design and output of Skyport IT and managing the solutions our customers need.

Making the tech as enjoyable to use for the customer as it is for me.  If you’re fighting the computer network to get your job done, things are wrong.

Most exciting thing about technology:
I find it amazing how much a tech can actually do.  From the simple things like allowing someone to keep up with their email by letting them get it on a tablet,  to the more complex tasks, where we’re securing data from unauthorized use, the sheer possibilities are fantastic.

Proudest accomplishment:  
I went to a customer site that had lost a server holding important documents, and while doing a site audit, I found a machine that had been configured to cache some of the information to make it run faster.  Using our tools, I was able to pull the expired cache from that PC and recover a large portion of the files thought lost with the server.

Favorite low-tech activities:
Swimming, roller blading and board games. There is nothing like a game night with family and friends playing Catan, Ticket to Ride or Telestrations.
