There are patterns to success; and failure.  My goal is to help my clients identify and leverage the strategies that lead to success. I'm an engineer by trade, a hacker (programmer subculture) by nature. I'm a software architect with over 20 years of business and technical experience and the president of a non-profit organization focusing on STEM education, entrepreneurship and career development. I ask myself everyday "what are you doing for others?" My answer is always the same: Help tons of students and their families and others, young or old, improve their education, develop their career, and enter the entrepreneurial space"
