Computers entered my life in 1967 when my father began repairing them. After earning a BS in Computer Science I jumped into the field with both feet. In 1984 I began on IBM S/34 and S/36 stepping up to the AS/400 in 1988 and sticking with it to this day. I spent many years as a developer then system admin then as a business partner and consultant. Today I am a consultant and co-owner of iInTheCloud LLC.
I began volunteering with COMMON in 1988 and speaking 15 years later. Since then I've been on the education team, assisted with certification tests, worked on the tech team, and served on the board of directors for the past 6 years, the last 2 as President.
