I'm a parallel entrepreneur. For my day-job, I'm a partner in the consulting business I started in 2004, Civitium. In 2011, I created 7hills Makerspace in my hometown of Rome Georgia. I co-founded a project called Makervillage to expand maker culture throughout the community. And finally, I co-founded a cloud-based crowdfunding service called CrowdFiber, focused on the broadband industry. I'm mostly self-taught; a book nerd; a dreamer; idealistic; ambitious. I start lots of things I don't finish. I swing for the fence, but I strike out a lot. I'm fiercly loyal.
