I had a career of over 30 years as a high technology leader and professional Information Technology manager and consultant, directing and managing IT projects and organizations at all levels (staff, management, executive), in companies of all sizes (from small entrepreneurial environments to global Fortune 50-level enterprises, and everything in between), and in industries of all types (consulting/engineering/construction management, defense and aerospace, high technology manufacturing, software, banking/financial services). My career and personal holidays enabled me to travel extensively (31 countries) worldwide for several years, providing me with a rich appreciation for multiple diverse cultures.
I first came to "Team BlackBerry" in 1999, but also experienced many other platforms...always coming back to BlackBerry as, quite simply, "the best". Leveraging that experience, I have contributed here since 2008, helping out thousands of other users; I maintain the #2 ranking (as measured by post counts).
Recently retired, I am now pursuing my dream of Real Estate investing (I own several rental properties already) coupled with skiing...I took up skiing only in my 40's, but it quickly became my "white powder habit" of choice. Living in the Lake Tahoe area, I have access to plenty of ski resorts, and work at one of them during the season.
