Welcome to my first blog post on the revitalized ITBusiness.ca Web site. My intention is to use this blog as a place to share a blend of experiences and thoughts from time to time.
Here are a few things about me:
- I’ve been working in the technology industry full time since 1992, but my experience in IT dates back to running a multi-line BBS as a teenager in the late 80’s.
- I currently am involved in the leadership of 3 distinct businesses. CMS Consulting Inc., a professional services firm. Infrastructure Guardian Inc., a managed services firm and Black Arts Illuminated Inc. which runs the SecTor security conference.
- Despite being rather fond of gas powered toys (cars, motorcycles, boats, etc), I have spent the last couple of years focused on human powered activity. I completed my first ironman triathlon this year.
- I’m married to an amazing woman and have two wonderful kids.
I’m expecting to use the blog in the following ways:
- Share lessons learned from our various projects across industries and across Microsoft technologies.
- Share the lessons I learn growing my businesses and managing a team of highly talented individuals.
- Pontificate on the future of IT and emerging technologies.
I hope you enjoy and participate with your commentary.
