Resume and Background

This page details some of my pre-seminary professional career. Across those 20 years, I was a public speaker and technology evangelist in the field of Internet security, where I created and developed start-up businesses, led cross-functional organizations in large and small companies, wrote a book (and a lot of articles), taught seminars, and coached sales professionals and IT executives on how to lead, succeed, and thrive.
