What would you be interested in learning about though this group?

Development of social media websites and UX Design tools.

Do you have any specific experience or expertise you would like to share with the group?

I have extensive experience building bootstrapped businesses. In 2011 I received my Executive MBA from Benedictine University with a focus on Financial Management and Entrepreneurship.

How long have you been involved as a professional in the computer industry?

My experience dates back to 1978 when I took my first BASIC programming course in high school. I purchased my first computer in 1982; the Commodore 64 and eventually upgraded to the Commodore 128...enough said? In 2003 I bootstrapped a software company that specialized in recreation management solutions. In 2006 I exited the business and decided to try corporate life as an IT Director. In 2010 I left the corporate world to try once again at identifying a market niche and bootstrapping another technology company.


I've been an entrepreneur and IT enthursiast my entire life. Looking forward to connecting with some of the same.
