After getting my start in the US Air Force and working for a few Fortune 500 companies, I found my place when I landed at a contract furniture dealer in 1988 – that’s where my career really started! I founded Empact IT in 1998, and we have been focused on software development and reporting since its inception. Over the years, we grew, operated, and then sold a healthy IT managed service business. That was really a distraction from what we are passionate about, which is creating great solutions!

Outside of work, I am a fanatical fisherman (hard to really even call it a hobby, it’s an obsession). I also love travelling the world with my beautiful wife and spending time on the Texas coast, with our dog Bailey, every chance we get. I’m working on getting my priorities in line so that I can get back to my other passion of golf. One of these days… 

Director of Software Development & Client Services

Over the span of 19 years, I’ve had the opportunity to experience the gamut of roles as an IT Consultant: Java developer, all tiers of support, business analyst, project manager, team lead, sales, manager, and director. When I came out of school, I always said that I want to help people through software to do their jobs more efficiently, and Empact IT has fulfilled that desire for me every step of my career.

Outside of work, I love being with my family, caring for my daughter and Doberman, skiing, cooking, smoking meats, and going on adventures, whether that’s hiking, backpacking, whitewater rafting, or anything mountain- or water-related!

Director of Product Development

After spending 27 years at Steelcase in a number of leadership positions within the IT organization, I developed a strong affinity for the dealer network. At Empact IT, I’m able to strengthen that affinity by working with our SaaS development team to create the best technology services and solutions for contract furniture dealerships.

My personal passions are my family, who have helped me define every aspect of myself along my journey, travelling to create experiences and share the world with the people I love, and learning – I expect to continue learning and reinventing myself until it’s no longer necessary.

Dealer Productivity Consultant

I have 26 years of experience with Steelcase order fulfilment processing and Hedberg knowledge, starting at McCoy, Inc. in Houston as a Customer Service Coordinator and then becoming their Hedberg order process trainer and admin. I moved to San Antonio and started working with Empact IT in 2006. 

I’m originally from Maryland but have lived in 6 states, currently residing in Minnesota. In my free time, I love to garden, paint, read, and travel! 

Dealer Productivity Consultant

I’ve spent over 30 years working with Steelcase dealers to improve their businesses through the effective use of automation tools. I also have experience in financial management, business planning, fundraising, event planning, employee training, and business process consulting, too!

Reading is a passion of mine. I’m the founder and former president of First Readers of Enfield, CT, a non-profit program to recognize and celebrate a key milestone in learning – becoming a reader.
