I am the president and founder of Fredericksburg Technology, a leading IT service provider in the Fredericksburg region. I have 14+ years of experience in the tech field, ranging from full-stack web development, software engineering, IT consulting, and security. I began my career as a front-end web developer, contributing to open-source projects such as MediaWiki and Wikimedia Foundation with a focus on user experience design and social features. I grew from there into full-stack development and operated several Linux-based web servers hosting free online communities serving over 65,000 users.
I am a member and club president of the Rappahannock-Fredericksburg Satellite Rotary Club and active community service participant in the Fredericksburg area. I serve as vice president of the board for the SPCA of Fredericksburg and have adopted two dogs there myself, as well as being involved in various other community organizations and non-profits. I serve as a board member and secretary for the Fredericksburg Area Museum, board member of Fredericksburg Main Street, board member of the Fredericksburg City Cemetery, and serve as an advisory member and committee member for numerous other local organizations and groups.
As a hobby, I spent several years practicing photography, and operated a commercial photography business for 3 years, with most of my attention being towards photography in the automotive industry, for auto manufacturers, aftermarket companies, auto shops, and motorsports. Some of my portfolio is available on my Flickr.
