I Help People Communicate
More Efficiently, Effectively & Successfully

About Me Book Me to Speak
Consultant & Trainer
I'm a tenacious and methodical problem solver with 25 years' experience as an IT consultant and computer trainer.
Coach
I partner with my coaching clients to help them change the trajectory of their professional and personal lives.
Speaker
As a trainer, speaker and former university instructor, I love creating and delivering engaging, informative and motivational messages.

I'm a lifelong learner and a voracious reader with a relentless curiosity.

Resulting in:
  • A realization that most challenges I face are not unique. SOMEone out there has faced the same thing or something similar and has probably documented it. I can learn from their experience - and their mistakes.
  • A strong understanding my thoughts and opinions are not validated by dismissing alternative views. If my beliefs can't stand on their own against questions or scrutiny, I should doubt my assumptions and search for truth.
  • A mindset that reminds me that when I can't do something, it's because I can't do it YET.
  • An unrestrainable enthusiasm for sharing what I learn.

    Most of us take the path of least resistance when it comes to figuring out how to get our computers to produce the results we want. Unfortuntately, that often means we end up doing things the hard and long way. Many times, there's an easier, faster, better way. Learn How I Can Help
    Increase Effectiveness
    We cannot not communicate. That means even when we unknowingly express a thought or emotion through a facial expression without saying a word or taking any action, SOMEbody could be receiving a message from us, albeit an unintended one. Send intentional messages. Learn How I Can Help

    Work Smarter
    Not Harder

    Computers. I can help.

    Computer Consulting

    My first step is to accurately assess and thoroughly understand your current resources and desired outcomes. Only then do I focus not the process, but on achieving the end result in the most efficient, cost effective method possible.

    Computer Training

    There's more than one way to accomplish most every task. My training incorporates not only your specific circumstances, but also your preferences and level of expertise, because sometimes the "best" way isn't always the best way for YOU.

    Website Creation

    I created this website
    and I can help you create yours.
    I develop and design inexpensive, non-ecommerce websites, mostly for small businesses that don't need extensive maintenance or frequent edits.

    "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs...but who does actually strive to do the deeds...who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly..."
    Theodore Roosevelt

    Your resume is the answer key to the test about YOU. I can help you formulate a response to questions about your resume, "what would you do" scenarios and even negotiating salaray and benefits.

    Within a span of just a few days, I had two different friends say the same thing to me about their experience reading my blog:
    “Sometimes I read a sentence and I have to stop and read it twice.”
    One friend said the words I wrote "really made her THINK."
    The other said: "Sometimes you just ramble on."

    I still remember both comments. But ya know which one hung over me for weeks and instilled more writer's block than a cranky English teacher with a 12 pack of blood red pens and hankerin to use them.

    Finally, after processing these statements for much too long, I landed on this thought:
    “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be somebody who hates peaches.”
