I am a Technology Executive with 20+ years experience in the Enterprise Content Management industry.  I have worked with a variety of people, technologies, manufacturers and customers from installing early versions of Novell Netware and token-ring PC networks to developing business process management and document imaging solutions.

I began my career working in Alaska as a copier repair technician, from there I moved on to my first role in the document imaging field as a sales engineer and technician for a Seattle based systems integrator.  I was responsible for working closely with sales to generate revenue and build a customer base.  After successfully selling, implementing and supporting dozens of document imaging and optical storage solutions I moved to Seattle.  Working closely with upper management I implemented some of the earliest and most successful document imaging solutions in the Northwest and throughout the United States.  It was during this time that I recognized the need to create best practices for architecting a document management solution and building a project delivery model.

I have had a long history of entrepreneurial leadership. You can find my complete professional profile on LinkedIN – In 2011 I started cloudPWR®
