I grew up in Wash, DC, son of a career FBI man. I studied photography at Rochester Inst of Technology, but instead found a calling in helping people apply technologies. 30 years were spent in Sales, Marketing and Product Management in the Technology sector.
Through that, I provided consultative services architecting complex information systems to 1,000 companies, from Fortune 100 on down. Along the way I earned numerous certifications, including in Project Management, IT, and Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 Compliance.
I think that speaks to an aptitude for working with deeply complex topics and understanding how solutions touch many moving parts. It also saw me at the center of negotiations in multi-million $ deals, and one thing Venice needs is a better negotiator.
After moving in 2014 to Sarasota, Regina & I bought a home in Milano in North Venice 18 months ago. I started looking into Venice politics. With no opposition for Seat 6, I decided to run (made it with 24 hours to spare).
