                                                       Consulting Your Issues Away

Since 1986 I've been working with computers for various organizations, both large and small, from Chicago to Philadelphia to Wilmington, Delaware; also Dublin Ireland, and many other cities across the US.  If you are not using technology for your personal gain, maybe I can help.  Just because you are not a techie doesn't mean you can't use tech in a small way to better yourself.  Let me show you some tricks, no charge.  Use the Contact Us form to start the process.  You can do it, I know you can... :)

I'm active in the stock market, giving pointers to friends and family on new companies, new technologies, general ETF/Mutual Fund and 401k advice.  I am not licensed.

I have done IT consulting work for the Irish government, large and small organizations, grandparents, churches, family and friends.  I have built desktop PC's from spare parts, have crimped coax cable BNC ends, created databases, managed corporate LAN's, worked a busy Service Desk answering end user phone calls to then try to solve on the phone easy password issues to complex application issues during the normal work day and also On Call After Hours support, and have also done Incident Management work during normal business hours and also On Call After Hours support.

I love being a father to two men I admire for their hard word and determination, both with college degrees.  I also love being a step father to my wife's 'kidos', one college grad and the other a sophomore in college. 

I also love having a step dog, yes they exist.  Buddy is featured on the Home page, travels between homes as the 'kidos' go and how the extended family travels.  Its great having a built in kennel service!

I love to travel for work and pleasure.  I have been to Europe(8 countries/2 trips), Alaska, Aruba and Bermuda for major trips.

​My passion is skiing in the winter, having skied all over New England, Pennsylvania, Michigan's Upper & Lower Peninsulas.  If you haven't skied Mt Boheima, heck if you've never heard of it, you need to go check it out; Vail, Beaver Creek and Breckenridge Colorado; Deer Valley and Park City in Utah.

I have taught many people how to ski over the years, from 4 year old's up to adults.  I even got my father back on skis one day when he was about 74, albeit for 5 bunny slope runs and then one long green run at Blue Mt ski resort in PA, after which he said "I'm retiring from skiing, right now" :)  Thanks dad for dragging me into the car in 1976 kicking and screaming, not wanting to learn how to ski at Mt Brighton.  Funny how life works since you couldn't get me off the hill that night, with you having to work the next day, school for me.  The passion started that night, continues today.

I also ride one of my two bicycles often in the spring/summer/fall to keep my legs in shape for skiing.  I have recently completed two 65 mile charity rides from downtown Philadelphia to Atlantic City, NJ, raising money for the mission of the Families Behind the Badge Children's Foundation. ​ 

I've been a University of Michigan football 50 yard line season ticket holder for over 30 years.  GO BLUE!People I admire:

Ever since a night in the winter of 1979 and like 10 degrees out at 8pm, in Houghton, Mi my new adopted hometown, in the Dog House bar, only 16yrs old and not drinking, swear to god, a gang of us sat around a table and I thought that we all had made it as we could be in a bar and not drink, have fun and play “Meat Loaf - Paradise By The Dashboard Light” on the jukebox. Ever since that night, whenever I hear this song, no matter where I am, this vivid memory of that night jumps to the forefront……Tony, Craig, Steve, Missy, Chuck, Karen, Rich, Colleen, Alice and a few others… :))) May we all stay young at heart… RIP Meatloaf, you will never be forgotten:

Video link below to YouTube, crank up the sound and sing, loud:

Meat Loaf - Paradise By The Dashboard Light

Last book I read:

Where the Crawdads Sing - Excellent!

Favorite TV show:

CBS Sunday Morning - The ending segment "Moments of Nature" needs to be longer CBS people!

My Skis:

Rossignol Experience 84Ai    -    126 Tip - 84 Waist - 116 Tail

My Ride:

2012 Ford Escape Hybrid with ~63k on it, bought used in May 2019 with ~27,500 miles on it.  When the rear seats are down, plenty of space to fit a bicycle or two inside, less chance of it being stolen when inside.

My road cycle:

Trek 5500 Carbon OCLV road bike, Ultegra components, Reynolds Solitude wheels - bought used from a friend, the lightest bike I've ever had, like 6 pounds.

Pasty - Ever have one?   You can order from and your purchase helps support care for the elderly in Michigan's remote Upper Peninsula, my dad is one of those.
