I’ve lived in Duluth my whole life, aside from the less-than-four years at St. John’s University where I earned a BA in Computer Science. Since then, I have worked in the ISP industry, starting with a small, fixed wireless ISP called Superior Broadband. We successfully competed against the cable and telephone incumbents, delivering reliable internet access to businesses and residents all over the region.
After six years of building that business, the company was acquired by a regional IT hardware and services provider. I spent seven years continuing to grow the ISP and learning the IT hardware and services, managing projects, and managing services inside of the business. I then joined Consolidated Communications (formerly Enventis), our region’s primary fiber network carrier.
Throughout my work, I’ve been able to help my clients find reliable connectivity, leverage technology, and grow their businesses, but I was limited to the solutions offered by the firms that employed me. In 2020, I decided to eliminate that limitation and started Duluthian Networks. Now, I can confidently identify ALL client options, lay out my recommendations, and bring true value rather than simply salesmanship. I love what I do and my customers benefit from that!
