About me

Dad of two young daughters, avid traveler , amateur photographer, big picture thinker , tinkerer and minor web geek.

I’ve been around the www since day one (day two actually if you include Tim Berners-Lee’s NeXT server) staring with installing Mosaic end 1993 and essentially creating one of the first intranets around. I was in Customer Support for HP back then and figured it would be a useful tool for providing support information and I haven’t stopped thinking or doing that since.


My specialty is bridging the gap between business , information architecture, and web development. Lately I have been more involved in leading the Design for Serviceability initiatives for HP commercial printing business. I am also especially interested in the adoption of new media,technologies amnd how we can use them for business.

Some of the things I’ve worked on:
