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

I started my career working 10 years for a very large computer company in a technical sales role. I had the privilege of working directly with our customers every day. When that company closed their local sales office, I went to work for one of my customers serving in multiple technology leadership roles over the span of 27 years, but I missed the direct interaction with customers. Now, I’m back where I started, working for a customer-focused technology and services company. Empact IT is giving me the chance to create the best products and solutions for our clients and partners in a vibrant and energetic environment!

Away from work, my first passion is my family, including my wife and my four geographically dispersed kids and my two grandkids. I love to fish, but there’s never enough time for it. And I’m an avid reader, which supports my desire to always learn and grow. I hope to always learn and reinvent myself until it’s no longer necessary!

Productivity Consultant

I have 26 years of experience with contract furniture dealers, starting at McCoy, Inc. in Houston as a Customer Service Coordinator.

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!

Project Manager

Having worked with Empact IT for over a decade before joining I was able to fine tune my skills through a variety of challenges- from starting and growing analytics teams in healthcare and marketing to working with NATO on social listening for counter-terrorism, all while using data to make complex business decisions. At Empact IT I’m able to apply my passion of helping people problem solve complex issues with customized solutions using data.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 kids. We enjoy spending time together outside. Whether its playing baseball and coloring with chalk on the driveway, playing golf. or swimming in the pool, you will always find us outside. I am a huge sports fan for all things TCU as well as the Astros.
