I wrote my first line of code in 1973.
I was at Bell Labs in the earliest days of the internet and mobile telecom.
I was a journalist for top tech titles during the pre-2000 boom years.
I spent the next 20 years face-to-face with technology buyers and users in finance, healthcare, insurance, retail, manufacturing, education, & utilities.
So I've seen a lot and know a lot.
The content I craft helped my clients achieve multibillion-dollar exits,
win approval from market analysts,
boost their social buzz,
and get ink in major media.
Most importantly, I write what
today's B2B buyers want to read:
crisp copy in bite-sized pieces
that clearly conveys a short list
of clear, compelling ideas.
I don't just hide behind a desk.
My work has also landed me onstage
presenting conference keynotes,
emceeing major corporate events,
leading executive roundtables
across the US and overseas,
doing live on-camera interviews,
and moderating online events.
My engagement model lets you use
my time and talent on-demand
at reasonable cost
with no undue commitment.
You simply buy blocks of hours
and use them as you need them.
It's easier, less expensive, and
more flexible than either a retainer
or per-project pricing.
Plus it promotes the continuous,
free-flowing collaboration you want from a true teammate.
While working on a Big Data project for IBM, I observed a disconnect between data analytics teams and the technicians tasked with provisioning the infrastructure necessary to execute what those teams required.
The blog I wrote suggesting closer collaboration between those two groups is now cited on Wikipedia as the initial coinage of "DataOps."
I continue to write, advise, and present on this topic — most recently
as the keynote speaker at DataOps Shanghai in China.
