I consider myself a Technology Analysis and Communications professional. My extensive background in the consumer electronics industry includes product development, testing, competitor analysis, reporting, and development of technical white papers. In addition to my technical roles, I have been recruited for and successful in public relations, customer service, project management, sales, and teaching positions. My passion for technology started during my photography career. I was lucky to be there through the transition of Analog to Digital Photography. Working with film cameras, retouching images through dark room manipulation, touch up dyes and paint brushes, to using digital cameras and processing images through Photoshop has been an amazing experience. During this transition I learned to embrace new technologies, and gained a deep desire to understand how they function. Based on my photography, I was recruited by PC World Magazine. It was extremely exciting to work for a magazine that gave me access to new consumer electronics and cutting edge technologies. I was drawn to technology, whether it was being introduced to new devices from vendors, discussing new technologies with colleagues, or attending CES. After working at PC World my career took a different path more focused on public relations, customer service, project management, sales, and teaching positions. Eventually, at Samsung I combined my skills in photography, public relations, project management, and love for technology in my position as a QA Manger. My role at Samsung included product development, testing, competitor analysis and public relations with a focus on product reviewer support. I was excited to work with the latest technologies, and share that information with like-minded people. I am an avid motorcycle rider, with some experience racing Sport Bikes. During my free time I can be found on long distance adventure rides or rebuilding salvaged motorcycles in my basement.
