About Me

I am a software engineer with 30+ years of experience in IT operations management. I focus my software engineering effort on developing systems and solutions to address IT operations and information security challenges.

Throughout my career, I have been enjoying the journey of developing a comprehensive portfolio of computer skills and projects. I do this because I enjoy learning how technologies work and how they can fit together to create even better innovations. Over time, I hope to combine the AI/analytics innovations and permission-based marketing for building something that is remarkable.

I consider myself an apprentice to Steven Pressfield and Seth Godin’s teaching. Steven’s ideas of Resistance and turning pro as well as Seth’s views on permission, linchpin, and shipping all resonate immensely with me. I try to put all those concepts into the practice of my work every day. I am also a graduate of Seth’s altMBA program.
