I'm a husband, father of two girls, and a business man (in that order).
I started off my career back in 1996, working for Mark Cuban at AudioNet / Broadcast.com. I began as a SQL Server Database Administrator, eventually evolved into a full-time developer, later began leading a small dev team, eventually a full dev department, leading and setting the technology direction of the entire company, and, ultimately, managing entire businesses.
