I used to do a lot of work with various technical and industry standards organizations. While I still have an interest in standards, the bulk of the work I’m currently doing is traditional solution design, development, and cloud- based deployment. Listed below are some of the standards I’ve led, developed, or otherwise supported. Contact me if I can assist you with your standards efforts.
