BACKGROUND: I was born in Chicago Heights, Illinois, and grew up by way of Washington D.C.
and Columbia Maryland. I joined the Marine Corps right out of high school and had 10 years of
military service between the Marine Corps and the Air Force. I have a BS in Computer Science from
University of Maryland and a MS also from University of Maryland in Information Systems Management.
I have worked for such large companies as Westinghouse and AlliedSignal Aerospace. In those
capacities I held positions of electronic technician and quality engineer. I have owned several
companies, including a cleaning company, a printing company, IT solution consulting,
telecommunications hardware, and software development. I also have been adjunct faculty at
University of Maryland and many of the local community colleges teaching technology related courses.
I sold my most recent company Symplicity Networks, Inc.
now I currently consult for a few local companies and am extremely busy pursuing my
Ph.D. in Information Systems. You can click HERE to find
