Hello from STEM School IT

It is an honor to serve STEM School Highlands Ranch as the IT Director. My desire is to have a significant impact in the lives of others.  Born and raised in the Midwest, I moved to Colorado in 2001.  After serving in the US Army, I pursued my B.S. from Purdue University in Mechanical Engineering Technology and then received an MBA from Cleveland State.  While working in the mining industry I traveled around the world.  I’ve been on five of the seven continents, and been paid to visit them all.  After a number of years managing a trucking company, I followed my love of computers into the world of Information Technology. I got my start in IT helping a funeral home conglomerate in manging their telecom and assisting with computer issues. I then went on to a local gas and oil engineering firm where I managed their IT infrastructure.  My love of learning helps me to keep up with the constant changes in technology.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our dog Molly.  My hobbies include my Harley, reading and researching and completing projects around the house.
