General

At some point I started measuring my life in decades. I spent 10 years as a commercial photographer, 10 years as a database developer, 10 years designing and implementing network infrastructures and security strategies, and over 30 years developing and teaching technology courses for businesses, colleges, universities and other training companies.

During all of that time the following has always remained constant:

  • I am first a student - since 1955
  • I am second a teacher - since 1985

In each role I have been blessed with being able to work with great people in interesting environments using interesting technologies. My good fortune has allowed me to travel to over 28 cities in the USA as well as seven countries on three continents—all on someone else’s nickel. Staying ahead of the curve on technology has always gotten me past the tough times.

Resume

I encourage all students, at all levels, to have their resume available and updated -- a life-time work in progress. Over the years I've seen too many opportunities lost or diminished by not being able to put a current resume in an interested party's hands at the moment they are thinking about you. By the same token, I was able to spend three of the best months of my life in South Africa in part because I was able to get a resume to London within minutes of the opportunity posting.

I also suggest that people place their resume in a place where others can see it and comment on it. To avoid being a hypocrite I do the same, here is mine. Please feel free to comment as you see fit. Resume
