Certifications & Experience 

Business Owner

With a team mindset and leadership philosophy learned from my time served in the United States Air Force, I challenge BeCloud employees to "Aim High ... Study-Fight-Win".  This pursuit of excellence has lead BeCloud to become a leading cloud service provider with numerous national awards.  We are constantly growing, thanks in large part to our employees' dedication, our nationally expanding opportunities, and our partnerships with Amazon Web Services(AWS), Microsoft, and Odoo ERP.


Systems Engineering

Microsoft Certified System Engineer(MCSE) completed in the year 2001
I've always loved problem-solving and figuring out how to make things work better.  Initially Microsoft Systems Engineering was my focus, but over the years I have gained considerable experience with other technologies such as Linux, VMware, Containers, Software Development, Networking, Security and Database Management.


Software Developer/AWS Architect

AWS Certifications at the foundation, associate, and specialty levels
I've been architecting AWS solutions for over five years utilizing the knowledge obtained from completing the AWS Developer - Associate, AWS Architect - Associate, AWS Security Specialty and Cloud Practitioner certifications to build high quality solutions for our customers.



As a lifelong learner, my passion is to share my years of experience and education for the greater good.  Community engagement is critical towards that end. I am the founder of the BeCloud Institute of Technology - A Cloud Boot Camp - that offers comprehensive training in information technology careers for those interested or just graduating college.  I am so happy to say that our program is having a positive impact on improving the trajectories for all those who complete it. We provide industry leading certifications and real world work experience that improves cohort salary potential and technical competence! I'm also a volunteer coding instructor at a local high school through the Microsoft Teals program.


Our Transformation

Our clients demand modern, fast and secure technical solutions to everyday problems. We shifted our business model to public cloud offerings to answer those demands. In 2011, BeCloud operated almost exclusively as a managed service provider of on-premise data centers.  While managing these "private clouds" throughout the United States and at client sites, we learned that for most customer scenarios we can provide greater flexibility, availability and security when solutions are executed through public cloud offerings with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Office 365 or Microsoft Azure.

Our Culture

We're a group of IT professionals with diverse interests. Some of us love football, golf, and bowling while others prefer to spend relaxation time gaming or watching television! However, we are all lifelong learners with one common mission: obsessive focus towards helping customers implement modern technologies to run business processes efficiently and securely.  Whether it's through cloud consulting or just advice on how to best utilize technology, we are your trusted IT experts.
