My professional experience is in the area of process automation. Process automation areas include industrial systems, laboratory systems and business systems. My education in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry and professional work experience in these areas along with my strong self developed skills in software development and design came together in the early 1990's with the creation of a software consulting firm to help automate business operations in labs, engineering firms, general business and industrial, chemical plants.

During the formative years of the software consulting business the main focus was on technology and processes and over time and through the addition of highly skilled and qualified developers and engineers to the firm, my personal focus shifted to developing my marketing, sales and business management skills. Those new skills were developed by experience and the school of hard knocks by risking my personal funds and assets on each and every business venture. While my technical skills were very important in developing the business, the business skills acquired through real world experience are what have made my various business ventures sustainable.

Goals

My goals are now focused on building LabLynx, Inc. into a multi-faceted Business Ecosystem that is focused upon the Laboratory industry and specifically on Laboratory Informatics. The end goal is to expand LabLynx through organic growth and disruptive technologies and business practices that will give LabLynx a distinct business and technical advantage in the market place and propel it to the undisputed leadership position in the Laboratory Informatics Industry.
