I first went live sometime in February 2010 with a simple Web site that advertised what I do. It underwent one redesign in 2012, but with the way the Web evolves, my site quickly became obsolete. And of course I should know… I work in tech.

Tomorrow I will be making a presentation to the president and CEO of the non-profit organisation I work for fulltime. If things go well, he’ll be convinced to let us improve the ICT infrastructure in the 19 schools our organisation runs. I would like to talk about how I got to this point.
