Put My Experience to Work for YOU

Who am I and how can I help you?
Computer Trainer & Consultant

For over 25 years, I've been providing computer training and consulting with a demonstrated history of immediate and lasting increase in productivity. With a natural aptitude for mastering computer software, a consistent pursuit of competence and an intuitive ability to empathize with and relate to users of all levels of experience, the computer training and consulting I provide are targeted and effective. My best measure of success is when my clients don't need me anymore.

Business & Career Consultant

For the last 5 years, I've been helping individuals research and identify career options, create career search plans, strenghten both hard and soft skills, overcome barriers to employment and even start their own businesses. I've developed a Signature Career Consulting Program that includes a unique resume service and interview prep. The skills I teach are secular, but if you're looking for a career consultant who never mentions how their faith impacts their own career or business and personal relationships, we're probably not going to be a match made in Heaven.

Interests & Obsessions

I write a little bit.

I read. A lot.

I love Jesus a lot more.

I'm a theology nerd.

I sing a little bit.

Incurable Bibliophile

A bibliophile is a person who has a great love of books. I see authors as friends and view reading as having a conversation with a friend. I'm always reading multiple books at any given time and I have a tendancy to read dead guys and footnotes, which means I believe history has a lot to teach me and I want references. I freely admit I'm a bit of a theology nerd with a thoroughly categorized and alphabetized book collection. Check out some of my Recommended Reads HERE.

Biblical Leadership Trainer,
Church & Parachurch Consultant
Christian Speaker

With more than 30 years of ministry and leadership experience in various capacities within a number of churches, denominations and parachurch organizations, my relationship with God is partially evidenced by my passion for relational apologetics, evangelism and discipleship with an emphasis on questions and listening.

Vocalist/Worship Leader

I'm an experienced vocalist and although I am available to sing at weddings, funerals and other events, my preference is to lead worship. I've also been recording for over 10 years. My style has changed over time and these days, I find myself gravitating to a good "stomp-clap." Click HERE to listen to my studio recordings.

Why Pragmatic?

It's not just the name of my company.
For over 25 years, the definition has been my guiding philosophy for the work I do:

adjective \prag-'ma-tik\
focused on needs and results, rather than with ideas or theories

Pragmatic Computing

is just that. The focus is on meeting specific needs in order to achieve optimal results. Every individual and company has unique needs and goals when it comes to document production, task and information management, scheduling and connecting with others through digital communication. The focus of Pragmatic computer training and consulting is on empowering clients to work smarter, not harder (or longer), maximizing efficiency by eliminating unnecessary steps, automating repetitive tasks and by minimizing the confidentiality and liability risks associated with recycling old documents.

Pragmatic Communication

is the art of responding, not reacting. It's the successful application of proven communication theory in real, every day situations. The fundamental goal when working with clients is to increase the potential for successful interpersonal interactions and strong relationships by teaching them how to recognize situations in which it would be helpful to employ a particular communication technique and by equipping them to apply it effectively and successfully.

Pragmatic Communion

characterizes an authentic no-holds barred relationship with God. I've encountered so. many. people. who mistakenly define Christianity as a religious affiliation, a moral lifestyle and a heart for service but have never experienced an intimate, dependant relationship with God that leads to abundant life - here and now, in this life and on this earth, not only in heaven after this life is finished. In my efforts to share the concepts and teach the practices of Pragmatic Communion, I offer Biblical Leadership, Church and Parachurch Training, Consulting and Speaking.
