Welcome to my site!
Please Note: Beginning in 2019, someone, thinking dis.com was related to Disney, has forged the dis.com domain in a hacking campaign that is compromising some vulnerable mail installations. THIS IS NOT ME. Unfortunately, I'm also being overwhelmed by responses and have delegated firstname.lastname@example.org to the bit bucket. Nothing sent to that address will be seen.
Until 2012, I was the President of DIS International Information Systems, Ltd, a software consulting company. In that time frame, I provided services to various companies, including Hewlett-Packard, The Oakland A's Baseball Club, Virginia International Terminals, Standard & Poor's Corporation, The National Association of REALTORS®, The Real Estate Standards Organization TVWorks, and numerous smaller businesses such as MB Foster, Associates, Bradmark Technologies, Inc, and Southland Association of REALTORS® to name a few.
In 1991, I was in the fourth year of a contract with ORBiT Software Holding, AG when ORBiT realized all their technology was vested in DIS. They made me an offer I couldn't refuse, and I spent the next 10 years serving primarily as their Vice President of Technology while performing some minor consulting through DIS.
In 2010, I started a contract with TVWorks, which is part of Comcast. They also chased me for a couple of years asking that I join them full time and in 2012, I relented. As a result, I decided it was time to close DIS and take the full time position with Comcast. I worked full time for Comcast Silicon Valley Innovation Center until December, 2022.
Since December, 2022, I've been spending my time on some open source projects, mostly revolving around the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network deployment in Marin and Sonoma Counties.
The corporation DIS International Information Systems, Ltd. was closed in 2013 and no longer exists.
The partnership Klein Realty Corp was dissolved in 2015. I am considering selling the kleinrealty.com domain.
