I have been interested in technology since I was a kid. I was the one that my parents would ask to hook up the new VCR or CD player. My first computer was a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A home computer. My first professional IT job was as a system operator on an IBM System/38 midrange system. Things have come a long way since then!
I spent over 25 years working in Information Technology (IT). I have worked for and helped companies from “mom and pop” to larger midsize organizations. I have been a system operator, network technician, and in management.
In 2015 I made a career shift to industrial automation and control products. This transition has been fun and challenging, putting some of my IT skills to use, while learning new electrical concepts and skills. I am enjoying the transition and the new role. But I really like the fact that I don’t have to work nights and weekends upgrading servers, or get middle-of-the-night phone calls because something failed.
My career motto is:
“The Right Technology + The Right People = Business Success”
Business Success requires both components. The wrong technology will be expensive and distracting to the company. The wrong people will not understand the technology and/or the business, which will lead to failure. When both are successfully implemented, a business will be top of their industry!
