My friend, Lewis Imperiale, died early in the morning of October 20th, 2020 after getting sick with the coronavirus. He was 40 years old. Please donate to… Continue reading Eulogy For My Friend, Lewis Imperiale
One of the best questions a leader can ask people they are leading is “What can I do for you?” Unfortunately, without a burning desire for a specific thing to happen this is a really difficult question for anyone to answer. So when the Lead Engineer on my team, the Engineering Manager, or the founders… Continue reading What do I expect from my leadership in my tech startup?

I also did it so that I would have weekly content on my website that would be timely, relevant and show that I was still paying attention to this site. I started… Continue reading Colorado Tech Weekly Now Has Its Own Website!
