About Me

I’ve been a technologist since the first time I saw an Apple II in 1982. Being able to give a computer some instructions and it presented results absolutely fascinated me. I stayed after school to learn basic programming in 7th grade. Went to the local computer store and pretended that I was interested in buying a computer. Instead, used it to try out games and programs (they kicked me out every time).

A similar thing happened when I saw someone playing piano, but I was much younger and started on that in 1976.

37 years later I’m still learning about technology and playing music. Big data, data science, cloud computing are all front and center right now. At present, I’m working with some of the largest retailers in the world helping them determine which products perform the best.

Gigable is a side hustle that was started in 2014 is still going strong and this is where my background in tech and music intersect.
