In the early 1970’s as a child I learned how to ski at Fox Hill Ski area in West Bend, Wisconsin. In 1999 I changed how their members learned about current snow conditions by hosting a website and introducing email. Both of these services were hosted on a server in my basement on Microsoft IIS and Exchange. My older brother Steve continues updating the conditions and web site content as well as serving on their Ski Patrol. In the early 2000’s my family joined Ausblick Ski area in Sussex, Wisconsin. In my free time I digitized their back office by implementing Siriusware guest services system and Exchange email on Microsoft Small Business Server.
Today I work at VMware as a technical solution engineer helping our largest business partner design, build, sell, and support solutions. My passion for technology started in 1979 when my father bought a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model I PC for our family. He learned from PBS that computers would transform the world. My career journey is detailed on my LinkedIn profile.
Prior to moving from my home town to Seattle, Washington I gave back to the local community through the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County. I served on the Board of Directors – Information Technology subcommittee for 7 years. The subcommittee helped the overall organization achieve their mission of changing lives and improving the local community. The organization manages resources, planning and communicates through their information technology.
