Thanks for visiting my web site. There is much to find here, including my resume, a little about myself, and much more. Not everything here is serious, however. You can also find thousands of humorous quotes and the official Geek Test! Feel free to browse around, take a look at what I have here, and by all means, please let me know what you think. In addition, while browsing around, please sign my guestbook!

To use my page, navigate through the menu items left, top, and bottom of the page.

I currently work as a Senior Manager for Grant Thornton's Firmwide IT group, located in Oakbrook Terrace, IL.  My group is all remote, however, and I currently work in the Denver area. This group leads all technology efforts for the US firm (evaluation, recommendation, integration, etc.). To view my qualifications, work experience, and interests, check out my resume. Much more about what I do for work can be found in my About My Work section as well.  References are available upon request.

If you are interested, you can download my resume in either Microsoft Word format or in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format.

For 18 years I lived in the Naperville/Aurora Illinois area with my wife and 5 kids (3 daughters and 2 sons). In 2013 we moved to Castle Rock, CO where we now live and love the life here!  If you want to find out more about me (i.e. hobbies, family, work), click here.

I love to receive comments about my site. I try to constantly improve it. If you have any suggestions or comments about this site, or if you just want to say hello, feel free to e-mail me.

INTERESTING FACT: Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by itslef but the wrod as a wlohe.

Here's an example...  The Gettysburg Address:

Fuor score and seevn yraes ago our feahrts burghot fotrh on tihs coeninntt, a new ntiaon, cinoveced in Lrtieby, and dieecdatd to the prioootsipn taht all men are crteead eaqul. Now we are egagned in a great civil war, ttenisg wteehhr that naiotn, or any nitoan so ceenicovd and so daeicetdd, can long eunrde. We are met on a gerat bltate-felid of taht war. We have come to dceidtae a piorotn of that fleid, as a fianl rsietng plcae for tsohe who here gvae their leivs that taht nitaon mihgt lvie. It is aehlgotetr finttig and ppeorr that we suhold do this. But, in a lrgear sense, we can not detacide -- we can not cotnsraece -- we can not hlaolw -- this gnorud. The bvare men, linvig and daed, who seurlgtgd here, have cneoasectrd it, far abvoe our poor poewr to add or detrcat. The wrold wlil ltilte note, nor lnog rmmeeebr waht we say hree, but it can nveer fergot waht they did here. It is for us the lniivg, rheatr, to be daeticedd hree to the uninsfihed work wichh they who fohgut hree hvae tuhs far so nolby advenacd. It is reathr for us to be here deitecdad to the garet task rniniameg bfoere us -- taht form teshe henoord daed we tkae iseecarnd dtiveoon to taht cusae for whcih they gvae the last full msrauee of dovtoien -- that we hree hglihy reosvle taht thsee daed slhal not hvae deid in vian -- taht tihs nioatn, udenr God, salhl have a new birth of frdoeem -- and taht gvomeernnt of the plepoe, by the ppoele, for the polpee, slhal not piesrh form the etrah.
