I fell in love with computers and programming them while in college and finished my first degree with a Major in Data Processing. I had a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration and was about to get drafted. So I joined the Air Force to avoid the Army thinking I would become a computer programmer in the Air Force. They gave me a set of tests at 6:00 am on the fourth day of boot camp that eventually indicated a score of 69 on the aptitude test for computer programming. I needed to score 70 to be able to be allowed that option. In their crazy system, they decided their aptitude test was a better judge of my ability than my degree that included seven computer courses in which I had done extremely well. Three and a half years later I had not even touched a computer. So back to school I went and found my love for computers had not diminished. My second degree in Electrical Engineering had a full focus on Computer Science. I spent the next few years teaching computer science, programming mainframe computers and mini-computers, and managing organizations that included computer programmers. It turned out that the Air Force test could not have been more wrong... I was a computer wiz!
I left the corporate world and redirected my work to focus on organizations and leadership dynamics. This new direction eventually led me to be more interested in the ways that we as human beings are programmed and delved into discovering ways to deprogram or reprogram people. Of course this is a much more difficult task. I continue to focus my energy and time to working with people and organizations with their own need to change so that they can become more successful.
In the last few years, I've grown more and more interested in the world of computing as it exists today. I'm especially fascinated by our systems of interaction as generated by the internet. We are collectively in the process of co-evolution between people and technology... technology evolves and we evolve with it... we evolve and technology evolves with us! This is co-evolution.
As a result, I am focusing on website development as part of my business consulting activities.
