|About My Tech Career|
I've worked for and worked with companies from as small as mom and pop shops to multi-billion megacorps. I've helped companies launch and helped companies shut down. In that time, I've done a bit of everything, including:
Software Design and Development
Networking and SysOps
Firewalls, security, proxy server management, email and infrastructure management
Data Center design and buildouts
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning
Network, Hardware and Software Security
Risk and Compliance Management including PCI amd FISMA
Corporate security audits, software and systems inspection, penetration testing, and defense design
I've managed multi-million dollar budgets and projects for under a hundred bucks. I have written, reviewed, and responded to multi-million dollar RFPs. If you need help in tech, I can probably lend a hand. More valuable are the contacts I have made. I have had the good fortune to work with some shining stars who I can depend on for information and advice. More than a few of them regularly ping me to find out if I'm planning to go back to executive leadership (or as one puts it, "when are we getting the band back together, man, we need our leader"). I also know my way around the business side. I've been lead technical sales working with Big Four accounting firms, presented to CEOs, and spent plenty of time in a board room and in front of corporate and government executives. I understand ROI, how software can help, and when software can be a liability.
I have also written or reviewed a number of certification exams. I was an SME on the original eBiz+ exam, and I have contributed a broad number of exams to Brainbench. I also do ghost writing. I've ghost-written books, manuscripts, and some CEO/CTO/Tech blogs for Silicon Valley.
