I have worked in IT since 1990, with specilizations in content management, web appplication development, data migrations, and platform transitions. I'm always happy to sit down, hear what your situation is, and figure out what help I can offer. An initial consultation is no cost. And you might be surprised what I can do without costing you a fortune. I've seen marked improvements in local business sales simply by making small improvements to web site performance and fine-tuning some details. Small details can make a big difference...

How I Work
- Simple Solutions - Complex projects fail. Simple solutions work. I'd rather spend more time understanding your business and the problem at hand than jumping into a solution, to be sure we've found the simplest, most effective answer. Often, a small change to an existing system or process is a good first step.
- One Problem At a Time - You aren't looking for a high-cost consultant, and I'm not looking for a high stress project. We avoid those things by doing one thing at a time. We identify one problem to solve, and we solve it. Lets pick your biggest pain point, devise a solution, make it happen, and only then move on to the next problem.
- Incremental Improvements - While I do like to work in small steps, that doesn't mean I take one step and disappear. I like to build long-term relationships, adding one step after another, building on prior projects, evolving your business over time. We can accomplish great things via a series of small incremental improvements.
- Technology only when needed - I don't believe that new technology is always the right answer. Sometimes a change to a business process using your current technology will work. Sometimes you have overly complex technology and we need to shut some things down. If we need something new, we'll go there. But I look for the right answer, not just an answer that lets us do a new project.
