Like everyone, I am a man of many facets. I rarely express myself in absolutes, and I love both puns and nuanced jokes. At the same time, I appreciate logical thinking so I try to remember “Occam’s Razor,” that the simplest answer is the correct one.

During the day, I am a technology marketer and blogger. On a 24/7/365 basis, I’m a dedicated husband, a dad to two amazing young adults, a brother/son/cousin and friend with many.

I am an incurable volunteer with stints ranging from PTA President, Boy Scout Leader, Fundraising Chairman, Board of Directors and Political Activist, to the guy that just shows up and rolls up his sleeves.

My work has involved positions in Fortune 100 global operators to co-founding two startups. I’ve lived and worked on 3 continents and I have a fluent command of Portuguese, Spanish and Hungarian. I also manage to mumble semi-coherently in English.

I've recently found my voice politically and you'll find me from time to time at protest marches or rallies, organizing folks in my hometown to contact our public officials or at a keyboard blogging and Tweeting.

Last, but certainly not least, one absolute I believe in fervently is human rights of all colors, shapes, sizes and orientations. I'll always give you the benefit of the doubt and it's all I ask of you.
