Since my early teen years I wanted to be in technology.
At age 13, wrote my first program in BASIC (video game)
At 16, I started in sales with ComputerLand, Store #11
At 17, I landed my first major account, Ernst & Whinney (back in the days of the Big 8)
Before graduating high school at 18, I was awarded "Top Salesman for the Midwest"
Went on to study Computer Science in College
Today, I am the CTO and Managing Partner for Elovate, a next generation IT Integrator headquartered in Chicago, IL.
I like hats & with nearly 30 years in Pre-Sales/Sales Management, Product Management, various Executive roles, Sr. Technologist, and Strategic Marketing, I have worn nearly every hat you can imagine.
My passion is connecting business to technology and helping both end-users and the vendor community to effectively and creatively communicate the real value message. That's where the fun begins!!
