Knower of Things, Doer of Stuff.
Dad. Technology Advocate. Geek.
I call myself a Technologist, but it really comes down to being a Geek, multi-subject Nerd (there's a difference- ask me), Inventor, and Entrepreneur. I'm deeply passionate about technology and communications (networking, internetworking, social media, and crowd-sourcing). All information can be learned, therefore, shared. Give me a book and a weekend, and we can accomplish some wonderful things.
I'm currently involved with a lean-startup within a large Telecommunications company, the Special Projects Division (SPeeD), to design and innovate next-generation technologies.
Prior to that, I was in Network Intelligence for the City of New York (design, monitoring, administration, forensics, enterprise architecture), UX/UI pundit, Engineering 'de-con-struct-or', and I worked on engineering last-mile SONET networks (fiber-optics) for carrier hotels in and around Manhattan, and in other cites around the world.
Certifications / Associations:
CHFI (Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator)
CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker)
working towards CCIE & JNCIE
I also enjoy Softball, Aikido, absorbing as much random information as possible (a la Cliff Clavin), and I'm working to become a polyglot (Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Hebrew, French, Spanish, Greek).
Have an idea? Let's work collaboratively to improve on it!
Technology moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
