I have been in business in various forms over the years, as freelancer, proprietor, contractor, consultant, partner and executive. I am creative person and implementor by nature, and have become a student of management, business and marketing.
Here’re my current businesses.
Guess what we do? More than "just websites", actually. Websites For Lawyers is a full-service boutique online marketing service. My partner, Gary, handles sales, content, marketing as well as project management. I provide the design, development and technical services.
I have been an independent website and software developer for many years doing website design and development, MySQL, a few mobile apps, Wordpress everything, Facebook pages. All of it is currently under revision.
I have worked for several well-known technology producers and innovators in both public and private sectors, including software/hardware, communications, defense, research and education.
Positions I have held: CIO, CTO, Director of Interactive Media, Software Architect, Sr. Software Engineer, and Systems Engineer.

I have a life-long passion for music, especially composition and songwriting. I have studied voice, guitar, piano, music theory, music history and electronic music. I took 3rd place in the Dallas National Songwriting Competition and co-wrote the Alma Mater for Dowling College.
