Welcome! I'm a software development consultant, speaker, and trainer, and an author. At this site you can get information about the services I provide, the books I've written, and my background and interests.
About Me Here's a brief biography, with a bit about my childhood as a world traveler, educational background, my transition from organic chemistry into software development, and my hobbies and interests.
This page describes the 10 books I've written, with links to the table of contents and
sample chapters for each. In addition to my seven technical books, my first novel, The Reconstruction,
was published in 2017. My most recent book is Going It Alone: Essential Tips for the Independent Consultant.
It presents a lot of what I've learned from more than 20 years as a self-employed consultant. I also wrote Pearls from Sand, a memoir of life lessons.
Consulting Since 1998 I've devoted my professional career to running my software development training and consulting company, Process Impact. This link tells you about all the products and services Process Impact can provide.
My Songs Several years ago my wife, Chris, told me I needed a new hobby. So I got out my guitars and started recording songs, both originals I wrote and covers of other people's songs. Chris hasn't made that mistake again. You can hear them here, if you dare.
