About

I have been in the computer business since 1995. Oh I played around a bit as a clerk for a local 7-eleven, a saw operator at Homac, an electricians apprentice for a few of the local union electrical contractor shops and finally working for my ex-wife’s parents. That’s where my career really took shape. That was my complete exposure to computers and my never ending desire to make them work for me. I spent three years in Baton Rouge, LA working for a company writing software with the founder of that company. After three years of living there and missing the ocean I had to come back to Florida. Its funny how you spend your whole life wishing to leave only to turn around and wish to go back. So here I am, back in Florida, no job, but looking hard. Found myself hired by the City of Ormond Beach Police Department as their “Data Records Management Supervisor”. It was a great experience. I was there when we had the great fires of ’98. Never heard the phone ring so much as it did then. Taught me a lot about myself and the people around me. It taught me what it meant to be a member of public service. While we make sacrifices, the rewards can be plentiful if you are inclined to believe that the satisfaction you feel by helping others is the reward. Well I did finally end up with the City of Holly Hill as their Information Technology Director. I have been here for over 15 years now. It has to be one of the best places if not ‘the” best I have worked. The City Manager Joe Forte takes to heart his responsibilities to the citizens and employees alike…
