My life began when I powered up
my first computer
I am fortunate to have always known what I wanted to do in life: computer programming. And the world of today seems to have been built to be programmed!
Anything technology sparks my interest and in particular computers. After studying computer science I decided to focus on the “Web” because of its global reach.
How amazing is it, that today you can have your own web presence, and share your message, products, and services anywhere on the planet. How empowering is that?
The things I believe in
When you stop learning, you start dying.
The world is changing very fast around us. New technology emerges every day that empowers creators and takes power away from the big gatekeepers. I am curious about all of it and I also know it makes good business sense to stay informed an up to date. At least that’s my excuse for getting lost in long nerdy reads.
Follow Best Practices
My curiosity is tempered by following best practices in the field. The new shiny thing, that is not yet time tested, may not be the best choice for a project looking for stability and predictability. Learned that lesson!
The client is not always right
The client knows their business and more importantly, they know their goals. When they look for a strategy on how to meet those goals they need to allow the expert to diagnose and prescribe a solution. It is hard to get an outside perspective if you know you are always right, right :)?
Better to be safe than sorry
While I do understand that business involves taking risks, I also know that good businesses work on minimizing that risk. Because of this, I am a strong believer in having backups, a recovery plan and using best practices and standards for long term projects. This lesson I resisted the most.
How I work best
I am here to do my thing, to enable you, to do your thing!
Struggling with strategy, planning and especially following through? I am your guy!
Numbers, charts, metrics, and tracking… aren’t they pretty? Maybe you don’t think so, but I believe that data driven business is the best business.
Standard solutions are easy, predictable and low risk. They make good sense, I agree! But what do you do when your customers need a customized experience? You contact me.
