Profile Information

Occupation:

Areas of Interest (Robotics, Software Architecture, Green Energy, Web 2.0, etc.):
Business Applications, Business Process Re-engineering (BPR), Security, Online Collaboration (especially problem solving), technology transfer/commercialization, any interesting technology that is evolutionary
About Me:
I am a business professional that speaks and understands geek and spent the last decade in technology. (I can code when pressed and have been building computers long before tech support was out-sourced.) Twice an entrepreneur, I spent time on a variety of boards developing the Atlanta professional community and assisting non-profits before relocating to Honolulu in 2009. When not discussing new technology I love the outdoors, especially hiking and any sport involving water.

I look forward to helping grow technology here in Hawai'i and give back to the community. A personal project of mine, I am particularly interested in discussing using on-line communities for problem solving
