Information Technology


Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems

Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting

Graduated summa cum laude from The University of Texas at Tyler


With 30+ years of experience working with personal computers, I have a broad understanding of computer technology, particularly software and software development. Since my business background includes management and information concerns, my experience is primarily with spreadsheet, database development, custom programming, and web development and management. My biggest concern is usually delivering a satisfying user experience with an efficient interface capable of delivering necessary and accurate information to the user.

I am proficient in several versions of Windows, Microsoft Office applications, including Excel, system and software maintenance, and I am knowledgeable about other operating systems and alternative office products, such as Ubuntu, Open Office, and LibreOffice. I'm capable at written communications, and familiar with accounting, finance, and most business processes.
