Full Biography

I am a full-time consultant where I specialize in development, training and Office templates.  I've been working with Excel since 2003 and helping those on forums since.  It's a great thing to be able to help somebody and show them the true power of Excel and Office.  I have had the privilege to have been awarded the Microsoft MVP award every year since 2005.  In my spare time I volunteer with my local EMS.  I blog and have written my first book at www.exceltables.com. My family gives me the support I need to be able to do the things I do, of which I am very blessed.
