About Me: A Tech Journey

From the era of the Commodore 64, I've ridden the thrilling wave of technological evolution. My journey began with assembling PCs, a time when every beep was a conversation with the machine. Progressing through tech support, I mastered the art of LAN and WAN networks, orchestrating servers and data centers. Later, as a Full Stack Developer, I honed my skills in coding and frameworks, evolved into a Development Team Manager, then a Project Manager, and ultimately, a Director of Technology. Now, as an independent consultant, I merge these experiences to navigate the dynamic tech landscape. From the Commodore 64 to modern server farms, I've experienced the full spectrum of this digital revolution.
