Welcome to my blog! Those of you who know me probably also know that I am passionate about the things I do in my life. In fact, my typical mantra is, “I am either all in or all out.” As a result, I am also known to have an opinion or two about the things I am professionally involved in such as financial markets technology and business leadership, as well as my personal endeavors of endurance training, competitive cycling and racing. For those of you who do not yet know me, please visit the “About Me” section of this blog or check out the various other professional and personal portals that Google makes so accessible to us.
On a professional level, I am a 25-year executive in the telecommunications and data center space. I enjoy writing, speaking, and analyzing the how’s and why’s of many subjects because I firmly believe that if I am going to devote my time to something — personally or professionally –I want to gain command of the subject to the extent that my efforts and opinions make a difference in some way. Whether I achieve the end result of making a difference is subjective, but the efforts and passion will certainly be notable and, most likely, public.
What can you expect from this blog and from me?
I plan to write one or two articles per month on relevant trends in the technology Industry. I have a unique position as a sales leader in the telecommunications data center industry, as I have become intimately involved in everyday technology such as smartphones, on-line gaming platforms and video-streaming services and am fascinated with their various affects on global technology and infrastructure. As technology changes our lives and the way we do business, many companies continue to make smart — and sometimes not-so-smart — investments and bets on how, when and where businesses and consumers will procure products. At an individual level, I am an entrepreneur at the core. I will be sure to provide a strong opinion on various companies’ sales and marketing tactics and strategies. In other words, why such companies are sure to be successful or why they may be wasting their money.
Last, you may also see some articles on motivation and competitive sports, as I have been an athlete for most of my life. For the past ten years, I have spent the majority of my time infatuated with cycling, charity riding, and competitive racing. I know so much about bicycles, their technology, and accessories, that I have a career waiting for me in retirement. I have many thoughts, stories, and motivational moments that I believe are reasons why competitive sports have made me successful in business.
I look forward to an on-going dialog with you on this blog and welcome your comments and suggestions.
