Bozeman, Reno, Seattle, Bandon. An Enterprise employee became a F500 Consultant with an abiding sense of empathy for Small and Medium Business challenges. Operated a botique Agency from Downtown Seattle in the 2000’s caring for self-hosted implementations on corporate data center servers, developing software and hardware (no kidding.) We kept several racks operating at a Level-3 data center near the Lake in downtown. Interesting client: A chain of 70 Independent Grocers (the very definition of ‘herding cats’. Think technophobia amplified by worse-than-Scottish frugality.) Since 2010 I’m a self-defined “Tech Refugee” consulting medium sized businesses on Web Presence Best Practices, preferring to work remotely. I’ve helped quite a range of Real Estate Agencies get aboard Social Media. I’m not a developer – the fact of the matter is I avoid custom code as much as possible. If we can’t find it the Plugin library, or via Widget? We don’t need it. Brief, free consults any time. Volunteer/Advocate for local NGO’s. I enjoy Organizational Change Management, and providing care and feeding for IT Divisions within larger companies.
S. Coast of Oregon. Cottage Office. Fiber to the Internet (no kidding.) Walking the dog on the beach later today.
|WordPress Origin Story||
Started in 2005 operating a blog for my Business. Then advised and participated in various collaborations involving WordPress self-hosted sites. By 2010 I was operating as an independent consultant with several identities across wordpress.com and .org. I started consolidating these in 2013. Now I’m pleased to just be who I am. “I feel more like I do now than when I got here.”
