Founder/Owner Edit
Business Backwards LLC

November 2011 – Present (3 months)

This new LLC organizes two of my current professional interests. The first interest being providing IT/Remote Networking services, predominately, but not exclusively, to the telemedicine industry (PACS/DICOM admin and deployment for teleradiology). The other pursuit that is sort of crammed under this umbrella is our Internet retail sales and marketing business, which focuses on bringing exclusive tech products to under reached markets. The push in 2012 will be towards regionally facing global webstores that combines with international warehousing and fulfillment, allowing for low-cost regional shipping to foreign markets.

I continue to make myself available for freelance/one-off projects, although this has become a minority of my work due to my availability with larger ongoing clients.
