About Jay

About Jay
For most of my professional career, I've been a small business owner or an independent consulting working on various IT-related projects for mid-size to very large companies. In my spare time, I've worked as a ski instructor and a mountain safety patroller. I've visited 49 states with my wife and children in an RV. I also love to write and run. I've recently published my first article for an online travel magazine and I've completed several marathons and Ironman triathlons.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
While working on my bachelor's degree I worked as an assistant in the university computer lab where I was responsible for teaching basic computer skills to other students. After I finished graduate school I taught Introduction to Computer classes at a local (Houston, TX) community college. Most recently I worked as a part-time ski instructor in Park City, Utah where I taught people of all ages how to ski or how to improve their skiing.
