I discovered my passion for technology long before the days of broadband internet. I have gained extensive technical experience in server administration, network administration, and software development since 1996. I have leveraged this knowledge to launch several successful technology businesses and have extensive experience in legal, tax, payroll, accounting and other small business issues.
I believe in responsible corporate citizenship and actively participate in local government, chamber of commerce and technology groups. My goal is to leverage our community’s regional technology assets to help promote and encourage economic development in Southwest Missouri.
