Who am I?I'm a technically minded individual who has approximately equal experience as an entrepreneur (NetMass, ServerBackup.com, and DataArchiving.com) and as an employee in the corporate world (TI and IBM). I consult as a way to keep my skills honed, I volunteer as a way to give back to the community, and I teach as a way to stay in tune with the upcoming generation. Currently, my activities include:

Service and Volunteerism
The Heights Lighting Team
I am currently volunteering as part of the Lighting Team at The Heights Baptist Church in Richardson, TX. It is here that I am able to provide the lighting design for the shows listed under the “Lighting Design” area.
McFBC Technical and Lighting Teams
For many years (between 2001 and 2006), I volunteered with a technical team from McKinney Fellowship Bible Church (now known as Christ Fellowship McKinney). We met weekly (or more if needed) to maintain the systems of the church. My specific part in the team was in firewall configuration and network configuration. Concurrently, I served on the Lighting Team. At the end I was leading the team. I was unable to continue with these projects after I moved away from McKinney.
