The Road So Far
I grew up in Muncie, Indiana and managed radio stations in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Lexington, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Ohio over the course of nearly 20 years.
I helped raise four amazing sons, Ty, Justin, Gaither, and Victor while earning degrees in Computer Science, Business Administration, and Computer Information Systems.
My passions include spending time with my girlfriend Jenn and her daughter Avery, data and technology, science fiction, classic literature, and playing the drums.
Guided by my parents, I was able to finally fulfill my dreams of living near the beach while beginning a new career in data analysis and technology.
Current Chief Technology Officer for non-profit organization working to end homelessness in Southwest Florida. Recent Master of Science in Computer Information Systems graduate with a concentration in Database Management and Business Intelligence. Offers 20 years’ real-world leadership experience working with teams, administering systems, completing projects, analyzing data, improving business processes, and exceeding goals.
HUD mandates the use of a Homeless Management Information System across the country. My vision is to use technology to create an online resource and community where HMIS administrators and workers can come together to share ideas, answer each other’s questions, and provide general guidance in order to more effectively combat homelessness in all 50 states. HMIS Help is the realization of this vision.
Gulf Coast Partnership
I am currently the Chief Technology Officer at Gulf Coast Partnership, a nonprofit organization that works to prevent and end homelessness in Southwest Florida. We write grants for local, state, federal, and private funding for our local partners, perform data analysis and database administration to demonstrate the effectiveness of homelessness prevention programs, and help guide the local community in coordinated resources to eliminate homelessness.
