"Resolve to perform what you ought;
perform without fail what you resolve."

 -Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)
Definition of ICT

Information and communication technology (ICT) is the science of technology and organizations.  The practice of ICT bridges the benefits of technology into the workplace.  

Technology provides many benefits.  For example, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) provides a layered approach to consolidate resources.  Business Intelligence (BI) develops available resources to provide analytic innovations.

Although technology provides opportunity it does not guarantee success.  Projects can exceed budget, fall behind schedule, and fail expectations.  ICT provides a balanced approach for technology management to facilitate company goals.  Success requires in-depth understanding and systematic planning.

Program Goal

My goal is to have mastered the principles of innovation diffusion. 

I will use these skills to adopt, implement, use and measure the effects of innovations throughout the workplace; i.e., value-driven process improvements.


I graduated with a B.A. in History from UW-Milwaukee in 1997.  I currently work full time as a Systems Administrator.

I am fortunate to have a career that I am passionate about.  It is a thrill to work with state-of-art technology!  I am very proud of my wonderful wife and our three kids.

I was inspired after reading Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew.  I now love to garden and I grow a variety of corn, squash, and tomatoes each summer.  One of my personal goals (after grad school) is to become a Master Gardener.

I also like to skateboard and snowboard.  My oldest son begins ski lessons this winter; I am excited to have a new downhill partner!
