I owned and operated a web hosting and development company for the past 19 years. I was involved in application development on a daily basis, managing the resources of the business, providing training for my staff of developers and keeping up to date on today’s technologies. Additionally, I acted as a project manager, and was involved in overseeing the product testing.

I spent 20 years in the Automotive Industry as a sales person and as a manager. The last 11 years I managed a Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Volvo store with 16 sales people.
