With 25 years of career experience as an IT specialist, I have worked as a consultant, contractor and employee for a number of high-profile corporations in planning, developing, testing, deploying and supporting enterprise-level integration solutions.
I have previously held multiple roles with Pier 1 Imports, where I led the company’s BizTalk initiative for multiple releases of pier1.com. I have also worked at GameStop, where I integrated gamestop.com with the company’s new order management system using BizTalk; at Xterprise designing the first ever global RFID retail asset tracking solution for American Apparel stores using BizTalk & RFID technologies; and developed various proof of concepts showcasing BizTalk's capabilities for clients such as Brinks, Scentsy, and JB Hunt.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems from the University of Texas at Arlington, with additional studies as Texas Tech University.
I reside outside Dallas, Texas, with my amazing wife and three active children.
