My Story

Growing up I wanted to start a business. For my undergraduate degree (SUNY Geneseo), I earned a BS in Management Science with a minor in Computer Applications. For the next few years I created numerous database applications (one for an established company, one for the executive and sales management of a multi-national corporation, and one for a startup).

I went back to business school (RH Smith School) and completed work towards an MBA. But like most of the students lacked clarity with what I wanted to do. For the next six years, I was a full stack developer for numerous website applications.

In 2011, I started a company for personal websites and created a methodology for learning called Skills Based Approach. And ever since I have been writing (2 books, 300+ blogs, and articles), designing and coding applications, and marketing concepts related to skills (through social media and videos). In 2016, I applied for a patent for Skills Label - a system to track the development of skills. I started a community called Skills Culture. Altogether, I am establishing a compelling platform for lifelong learning.

I have spent eight years working on these skills applications and publishing related materials. For the forseeable future, I see much work ahead. The relevancy is all around in education (experential learning), higher education (job readiness and critical thinking skills), and career development. I treat my work with skills as a science.
