MyPicture

My career has been defined by a passion for understanding how things work, a fascination with emerging technologies, and a burning desire to share with others what I have learned. I have been characterized by others as someone with an entrepreneurial mindset, the tenacity for solving complex problems, and the vision to see possibilities where others see obstacles.

I started my career as a graphic designer, prepress specialist, and digital retouch artist in the 1980's, then became a desktop publishing evangelist and educator before moving to web and multimedia publishing in 1993. I relocated from Denver to Evansville in 1997 when a consulting project evolved into a commitment that lasted more than 12 years. During that time I managed a 25 member team of writers and graphic designers, became adept at application development, and went on to establish the digital marketing group for the company.

I am currently active as a consultant to a handful of small and medium-size businesses, and a small business online marketing solutions provider through my websites at ProSocialTools.com and MobileReadyNOW!

As a creative and analytical thinker, I am able to develop great ideas and carry them to completion. I work well on my own, or as part of a larger team. I have extensive experience in graphic communications, digital publishing, and online marketing.

As a technology professional with more than 30 years experience, I'm capable of not only managing business operations, I can roll up my sleeves and help dig in the trenches. My skill set includes graphic design, photography, technical writing, copywriting, project management, software development, web development, audio and video editing, social media management, and more.

When I'm not sitting at a computer, you will often find me playing mandolin, fiddle or guitar at one of the local watering holes, or building furniture and music instruments in my woodworking studio.

People will become increasingly reliant on mobile commerce,…
