The Good Stuff
I am married to a retired firefighter (aka best guy in the world) and have three wonderful kids, a geriatric dog, and two rotten cats.

My staff and I are responsible for delivering services to ILTA members and business partners in the context of ILTA's strategic plan.  This is my dream job.

I have spent nearly 40 years providing document and IT services to lawyers.  Prior to joining ILTA, I was VP of Client Development Litéra.  I joined Litera following a 28-year career at global law firm Sidley Austin LLP.

I have a long history of leadership in peer networking groups associated with legal technology, beginning with the Washington Perfectionists, the first WordPerfect user group dedicated to legal.  I served on the Legal Advisory Council for both WordPerfect and Microsoft. 

I have seen ILTA from every perspective.  I am a three-time Board member and past President of ILTA, and I was a Platinum Sponsor.

I am a frequent speaker and writer on a wide array of technology and leadership topics.
