Harry has forty-plus years experience in a variety of roles and responsibilities within the information technology/service industry.  Harry has been in the practical side of information technology since he built an AM radio receiver circa 1960.  He learned “computers” in the U.S. Air Force as a Cryptographic Equipment and Electronic Systems Repairman in the late sixties, and got to spend some time in The Big Cookout, at Ton Son Nhut Air Base, RVN.  Harry has held a variety of computer service-related jobs and has experience with Burroughs Corporation (now Unisys), Digital Equipment Corporation, TRW Controls(subsequently Ferranti International Controls), Electronic Data Systems, and with a gaming machine manufacturer.

In the early 2000’s, Harry left the corporate world to engage in a five year sabbatical to experience and learn to “cowboy up” on cattle ranches in the Western U.S.  He developed skill and experience in colt starting, English and Western riding, Vaquero-style roping, cattle-working and handling, and the ancillary tasks related to cattle ranch maintenance.

Recently, Harry accumulated five years experience writing policy instruments (i.e., policies, standards, procedures, guidelines) for a Western U.S. state government.
