The project that I am most proud of is the work that I did for the Niello Company. In 1994 I built their first dealer group website. By 1996 their Porsche franchise recognized that customers were looking for vehicles online. Starting from that point, I built a highly available inventory management system that eventually grew to encompass an online presence for all fifteen of their locations including a custom backend with user access control. I built it all by hand and it was as faster than anything created with a PHP framework. Niello used my system for twenty years before trading it out for a website solution from dealer.com. To this day, I still provide email, DNS and other core services to them.
I’ve had a lengthy professional career. To see more highlights, see my professional highlights page.
I believe strongly that if you live in a community, you should help the community. By that credo, I have tried to give back in various ways. When I moved to Sacramento in 1984, I joined a social club called the Sacramento Tall Club. Through the Tall Club, I met my wife. To this day, I provide the hosting, email and manage the website. When I had an office near Fulton Avenue, I discovered that there was a Property & Business Improvement District for the area. I joined the board and am currently the Vice-Chair. Now that I live in the Gold River area, I joined the Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce. In 2022, I have become a Director. And is whatever spare time is left, I am now also on the board of directors and am President of our homeowners association.
