For the earlier part of my career, I worked extensively on Information Technology projects. I have worked on multiple ERP projects (PeopleSoft, SAP), worked on Financials, HR and Supply Chain projects and have designed and deployed application security for large amounts of users (50,000 users +). I also have a lot of experience with Enterprise Security, IT Governance, Risk and Compliance, eDiscovery and Electronic Documents and Records Management (EDRM) tools.
In addition, I am the author of several technology related books about Microsoft Operating Systems. First, Windows 7 and also, the upcoming Operating System Windows 10. In addition I have written 7 other books about Microsoft software products. As you can probably tell by now, I love to write about things I am passionate about.
More recently, I have spent the last decade focused on Online Business and Digital Marketing. I have worked as a Director of Online Marketing and CEO with extensive experience with Digital Marketing, Email Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Marketing Strategy, Online Advertising and Digital Advertising Strategy. My online properties have amassed over 80 million page views over the last 7 years and I have over 100,000 Twitter followers.
