Professional/Personal Overview
  I quickly assimilate a client's unique voice, vocabulary, and messages. More importantly, I am not afraid to challenge clients when they stray from their own stated goals. My career is built on ambition--I muscled my way into an online (pre-Web!) column at the age of 16 and never looked back.

With hundreds of articles published on customer relationship management (CRM) alone, I am a specialist in sales, marketing, service, and commerce. I am also a leading cloud computing author, with hundreds of published articles and content marketing items. Other focus areas include cloud storage/backup, call center/contact center management, and back office business process outsourcing/optimization.

Possibly the first to cover virtualization for a mainstream audience, I went on to write the first independent guide to VMware (VMware 2 for Linux). I have served as trusted ghostwriter for an NYSE-listed corporate CEO. Under my own name my work has appeared in over 40 publications.
