For 10 years, I have been developing software systems for dealers and brokers to manage websites, leads and inventory. I worked for several companies in the industry, both full-time and as a contractor over the years. I have developed websites for dozens of manufacturers and thousands of dealers. As the original author of some of the most widely-used software by dealers in our industry, I've always maintained a close connection with dealer feedback.
Over the years, I have strived to bring this industry together with data feed standards, committee meetings, and personal outreach. I have authored or co-authored most of the XML standards in use within our industry and still work with those formats on a daily basis.
I am committed to our industry in a number of ways and plan to be around for a long long time.
