My philosophy is that time is our most valuable commodity. No profit can be made, labor undertaken, or campaign pay off without an investment of this rarest of resources. It is, therefore, in your organization’s best interest to seek out ways to invest as little of your limited time as possible for the greatest return. The question remains, who could provide such a solution? Well, it just so happens that I know a guy. I am as creative as I am technical, a unique blend of attributes that have served me well over the years. I view each project as a unique experience, an opportunity to learn something new with the potential of branching off into an array of future opportunities. When you contract my services, you’re contracting a professional who recognizes that your organization’s success translates into his own.

Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s jobs with yesterday’s tools! -- Marshall McLuhan To achieve effective, efficient knowledge base curation, we view knowledge as a flow of data--not as static information. Cultivating content for computer-facilitated environments such as e-business and content curators is a 24/7 endeavor that requires: Collaboration = cohesion between people Vision = our sights are set on the year 2020 Opportunity = your knowledge base + our insights and vision Our focus is on your existing knowledge base and how to turn that knowledge base into a sustainable income stream in the Global Village. We predict that the Industrial Park Business Model will give way completely to the Global Village Model by the year 2020. If we are right, the businesses and careers that were pinned to the Industrial Park will be mired in a faulty knowledge base with a dwindling income stream.
