I am a software developer and entrepreneur living in Atlanta, GA. I started Draper Consulting, Inc in 1998 and co-founded AdminiTrack in 2000. Welcome to my blog. Here you will find a variety of topics ranging from technical to fun to personal. Use the categories listing on the right to locate topics that might match your interest.
I used to be a consultant and technical trainer speaking at various conferences both in the US and abroad. I love technology and programming, especially web-based applications and possess 25 years of information technology experience in medical, corporate and government environments. I now focus primarily on growing my businesses with technologies including SQL Server, ASP.NET, Web Services and more. I serve as CTO for AdminiTrack and am leading the migration into new technologies. I love what I do so much that I have never worked a day in my life. It’s all just play and I cannot wait for each day to begin and am sad when it’s time to stop.
I hold two degrees from Auburn University in Medical and Laboratory Technology. After doing my internship at Tallahassee Memorial Medical Center I became certified as a Medical Technologist (MT-ASCP) and worked at the University of Alabama Medical Center in Birmingham (UAB) for several years before transferring into the IT field and moving to Altanta. There I worked as a consultant for a large hospital IS vendor and later as an independent consultant. Over the years I have served many clients including Yale University Hospital, Vencor, TRW, Northrop Grumman and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). I taught myself programming using the Radio Shack TRS-80 and the Apple IIe so that should reveal my age. Technology has come a long way and I have been blessed to work at what I love. I hope that you have found the same happiness and contentment as much as I have.
I am abundantly blessed with a great marriage and two adult children. My wife Liz used to be a corporate V.P. and executive running businesses for a publicly traded company but left corporate life to go back to school to earn a Masters in Anesthesiology at the prestigious Emory University. She now works as an anesthetist serving Northside Hospitals through a large anesthesiology group. We are members of Perimeter Church where we worship and serve our community. I continually thank God for my undeserved blessings, grace, mercy and for the opportunities to serve in His name.
