I’m a proud believer, husband, father, veteran, volunteer with a wide array of mechanical, electrical, networking, telecommunications, hardware and software skills, knowledge and experience through service in the U.S. Air Force, my experience in the Legal, Oil & Gas and Software Vendor sectors/industries as well as my never ending habit of fixin' things.

​​

I'm a family man who's blessed by a beautiful and talented wife (of almost 30 years...and yes she's a Saint) and 2 awesome grown children.  I’m also an experienced and versatile problem solver who loves a technical challenge. I'm always looking to improve, design, build or create solutions through the uses of technology to make our daily jobs easier and life more enjoyable.  

​​

As the son of a Mechanical Engineer who could fix or build almost anything and the grandson of a former Army Mechanic who made a living fixing things after the War (and had a junkyard full of old stuff) my fix it or build it myself mindset was ingrained by default.

From an early age I learned how fun it is to take something apart to see how it works and/or to make it work again.  My Grandfather's junk yard was a goldmine for an over-active kid like myself.  Having access to his "junk" resulted in my first tech installation at the age of 10 when I wired-up an old rotary phone in my bedroom.  I was proud to be the only kid in elementary school with a penny pinching dad and my own phone.  This also began my path along the learning curve of making things better on a shoestring budget or of "doing more with less".

​​

I'm a self proclaimed Redneck Engineer with a versatile background and deep-seated drive to serve others for His glory.  ​It's only through the Lord's guidance, strength and purposes that I'm enabled to make a positive impact on others and to "leave things better than I found them". 

As someone who is "always thinking" and many times looks at things a bit differently than most, I've learned to cultivate a mindset of continuous improvement (or "Kaizen").  This allows me to utilize my creative thinking, inquisitive mindset, technical prowess and mechanical abilities to fix things and make things work better.

I could very well be the most unique Technology Consultant you'll ever work with. Let's test that theory, shake hands and sit down to talk to see if I can help with your Tech needs.

Side Note: I started my business as Handlebar-Tex due to my signature handlebar mustache, a given nickname of "Tex" ...and because I'm a proud Texan.
