I started making marks on paper, like any child would, before I knew how to formulate words from newly discovered letters. At the time I didn’t know how to articulate my feelings or thoughts or how to even translate them into readable form, but I scribbled away until I was satisfied by my “work” and that my “message” came through. This desire to translate thoughts to paper only grew along with me and what began as a hobby soon became a profession. I specialize in taking your passion and conveying that to the public in an engaging, informative and readable form.
I spent my childhood and much of my adult life living and traveling to different states and countries including Texas, New York, Denmark, Hong Kong and Dubai. For now, I have settled in my home in Bend with my two loveable dogs and (mostly) wonderful boyfriend and the three of them keep my life as happy and healthy as can be. I enjoy living and working in Central Oregon and I look forward to my future with Pine Echoes.

Senior Systems Architect
“Never Give Up! Never Surrender!” Tim Allen
A Nerd with a Personality. Having come into the Networking and Server world through small medical practices I gained a unique perspective on technology. I had trained and studied codding while in college and then began working for an Ophthalmologist and surgery center. Quickly I learned that no matter how cool the latest technology was it was not being implemented unless the business budget allowed. This perspective continued through mid sized and regional medical providers I worked for. Yet there were many useful technologies that very large companies were leveraging to be more efficient and gain an advantage. It became a passion of mine to find these technologies and find ways to bring them in reach of the small and mid size companies I worked for. This led me in 2007 to start my own company. It is now a personal mission to serve people with a local “Mom and Pop” style customer service but bring “Corporate” level tech to them.
