Hello, World!

About a year-and-a-half ago, I had a dream of starting a company with several of my favorite friends and colleagues, and today that dream is starting to come true.

Please allow me to introduce Trailhead Technology Partners. Trailhead is a custom software consulting company, and I’m proud to be launching it today alongside my friend and business partner, John Waters.

I first met John just over 6 years ago, and in the intervening years, we’ve worked together at two different companies. I’ve learned a lot from working with him, and we’ve also had a lot of fun together–both inside and outside the office. John is the rare individual who is a fantastic manager of both projects and talent, while still being the most amazing hands-on technical mind with whom I’ve had the pleasure to work. It’s an honor to be starting this new venture with him.

At Trailhead, we’ll be building on our decades of combined experience creating enterprise-grade software solutions for businesses in all kinds of different industries. We’ll be helping out clients integrate back-end systems, build data-driven solutions, and create applications on many different platforms: from Windows to Web, mobile, and even IoT. Together with a team of top-notch engineers that we’re currently assembling, we’re looking forward to great future success.

J is one of those very few people in life that you work with and soon realize you will want to keep working with in other jobs and other projects for the rest of your life. There are not a lot of people that make that cut, and when you then narrow it down to not just technical talent, but integrity, fun, friendship, and then add the dimension of doing business together, that list gets very small.

There are a few other names out there that make the cut too, so expect us to grow. But our business idea is NOT to become a large consulting company. We want to be like a top tier law firm, all Partners, each one as amazing as the other. When we need extra hands, we have a model to bring excellent talent on board, and I know from decades of managing consultants remotely how to make that work really well. So we can offer the benefits of a larger company by leveraging the core set of Partners along with a larger set of top tier developers.

I am extremely excited to launch this endeavor and I am honored to be part of J’s dream! Hoping to hear from you soon!
