Why we started Clearion:
It sounds a little highbrow to say that we started Clearion to solve work environment challenges with technology—and that’s exactly right—but in its basest, initial form, it was to prevent me from going crazy doing manual data entry in an old-school environment. Necessity truly is the mother of invention.
What drives me:
Every Clearion customer and application is unique. This constantly drives me, and the rest of our team, to shape solutions that are flexible yet robust. We are passionate about solving challenges and transforming work environments to make your lives easier and more productive. And that’s the truth.
More about me:
From a professional standpoint, I co-founded Clearion with Mano in 2007; however, I’ve been working in utility field operations, geospatial technology, and solutions development since 1995. (I’m sure there’s a lame joke here about working in GIS while still in diapers.) My roles have spanned from crew leader to business leader and include account management, sales, marketing, strategic partnerships, implementation, and product strategy. And, as a Georgia native who loves to travel, I have a BS and an MS in International Affairs from Georgia Institute of Technology. From a personal standpoint, I have a deep love for my wife and kids and a great fondness for the beaches (and golf courses and redfish) of coastal Georgia where my mother resides. And like a lot of the folks here at Clearion, I’m always in search of the next great meal!
