Welcome. I put this site together to combine what used to be multiple sites into one site. It's where you'll find information about me, where I share blog writings, and also serves as information hub regarding what I'm up to, business or otherwise. Feel free to choose a menu item above, or simply keep scrolling.
I started my own business in the early 2000s. The timing was far more accidental than anything else. Once the dot com bubble busted, I had the choice of starting my own company, or enjoy unemployment. The latter wasn't a viable option at the time, so I started a web design and internet strategy consulting firm. In short, we worked with over a 100 start ups and a couple dozen existing companies to help them make better decisions online. Whether it was building stores, registration systems, branding & marketing, custom software development, or just a fresh new website, I've seen it all. Now, I know that's not true (the "all" part), but that's what it feels like. I've worked with fashion companies, John Deere dealerships, Swarovski jewelry, fork lift sales, call center management, retail electricity providers, fitness gyms, furniture companies, restaurants, and most anything in between. Oh, and churches. Lots and lots of churches. Many thousands of them. Around 2004 I created a donor management software product for churches to help them accept donations online (it was a new concept back then). I'm not involved in the daily operations of that product anymore, but it still currently serves over 20,000 churches. I sold that software product in 2012, and remain a partner in the parent company to this day. While my head isn't in online technology all day like it was for so many years, I still keep my ears open to interesting opportunities in that space. These days, I have ownership stakes in several different companies where I'm active in some, and passive in others. It's a nice balance.
