Interesting numbers about me.
Years of Experience
Industries Worked In
The Swiss-army knife of technology with ambitious curiosity and a fearless trailblazing leader. I possess a deep technical background with a well-rounded business acumen. I continuously get my hands dirty with the next opportunity knocking at the door. I’ve become the go-to guy for IT, life & inspiration. I grew up on a farm, so I am no stranger to hard work however, I’ve learned relationships are far more valuable than how much we know or how hard we work.
I consider myself an accomplished Architect, Leader, and Mentor with over 24 years of experience in many industries. I have directed an EA Team and served 13 years as lead Enterprise Architect for the world’s largest private company in total revenue (Cox Enterprises Inc.). I’ve earned multiple cloud-based certifications including Azure Architect Expert, TOGAF, and professionally skilled in Cyber Security, Blockchain, Web3, Data Centers, Roadmap Development, Enterprise Architecture, SaaS, and Business Capability/Process Modeling.
I started my career in 1999 by offering to work for free just to be around technology – they ended up granting me an opportunity. I’ve served as a mentor for start-up companies for Project Runway in Atlanta and managed a 300+ million IT budget. I’ve helped obtain a healthcare blockchain technology patent and I’ve had tremendous experience with Blockchain, Cloud, and security-based technologies. I’ve also helped co-founded two companies (MT Mining Company in 2021 and Creative Social NFT Inc. in 2022). I have also participated in over 50 hackathons and placed in 10 of them.
