I’m a Consultant with an interest in marketing technology, information technology and the merger of IT / Marketing.
I’ve done a lot of things in my career. I’ve worked in technical support, as a developer, project manager, team leader & manager, group director and founder of three companies (didn’t make much money from them, but I learned more from these businesses than I ever thought I would).
These days, I work as a consultant helping marketing and IT groups with technology strategy, technology selection, implementation and management. My main focus is to help Marketing and IT groups work more closely and better.
Why marketing and marketing technology?
Simple – because I love the combination of technology and marketing/communications. I love being a part of telling the story of an organization.
I also love working with the creative folks I find in the marketing world. The creative people that can do so many things I cannot…I love helping those creative folks turn their creative ideas into digital realities.
In addition, I’m working on my doctorate degree in Information Systems with a research focus on text/data mining, sentiment analysis, and knowledge management. My recent research has been in the area of sentiment analysis using data mined from twitter…look for more on that in the future
A sampling of Consulting Services I offer: Technology Strategy, Technology selection, Technology Implementation, Management of Custom Development, Project and Program management for marketing technology projects, Content Management Systems, E-Commerce platforms, Project Rescue and Interim CIO / CTO Services.
I also partner with a select few companies / consultants that I’ve worked with in the past and trust. If I can’t help you, I probably know someone who can.

Please realize that I cannot work for free, for ‘equity’, on commission or on contingency. I have a family to take care of so I must be paid for my efforts just like anyone else.
