Welcome to my blog. I am hopeful it will add value, provide intelligent discourse and be worth everyone’s time to actually read it. I will do my best to make it compelling and hope that it opens my eyes to a whole new world of using the internet. I hope I feel like Andy Dufresne emerging from prison. Or at least like Red walking up the beach in Mexico. Chances are some of this stuff will be entertaining, some will be useless, some will be funny, some will be garbage. In the end I hope that we all get something out of it.
I’ve been in technology consulting my entire career, most of it with Accenture, a large firm chock full of amazing and talented people. I have worked with some amazing clients over the years, mostly Fortune 500 companies who are taking on large-scale implementations of ERP (SAP and Oracle), CRM, Enterprise portals, and Data Warehouses. I left Accenture at the end of 2006 to embark on another chapter, joining the ranks of Brulant based in Beachwood, OH. Brulant is an interactive marketing agency with over 300 people but a significant departure from the structure, rigor and methodology of the Big 4 consulting firms. At Brulant I have been able to immerse myself in eCommerce, interactive marketing and social media.
My intent for this blog is to share my experiences on what makes those projects great, what makes them difficult and what has inspired me to continue pushing through them – and most importantly get your pinput. In the meantime, some Red Sox/Patriots/Celtics may work it’s way in here. Not to mention living life in zone defense with 3 boys at home.
Thanks for finding me and I look forward to the journey. (man, am I already sounding that pretentious?)
