It is a big leap to leave a CIO position at a company where you worked close to 30 years. The hardest part is the mental adjustment and smoothing out the highs and lows. One day you feel invincible and the next that the whole world collapsing. From a world of certainty, I have plunged into a world where I don’t know what the future will hold. It takes some getting used to, but once you are there it is a lot of fun and your perspective on many things changes. Bottom line – I feel like I am in alignment with what I was supposed to do in this life.
It is hard to believe but it has been a year and a half since I began my journey as an entrepreneur with a dream to integrate software and technology with hard construction to change the way people connect, collaborate and operate their living environments – something we call Smart Communities.
My Smart Community adventure started over 14 years ago and it was honed through my years as a CIO working for a well-respected and innovative condominium developer and fine-tuned through my collaboration with designers, engineers, property managers and condo purchasers.
I have built a lot of software over my career to support multi-family real estate and it is great to be applying all that knowledge and experience into a solution that transforms how people live.
Everything we dream about, ideate on, and seek new solutions to is focused on one thing – Using technology to improve the lives of people.
Living simplified is our measurement for the resident and property manager – developing solutions that make their living environments secure, safe and convenient. We ensure that the building infrastructure is future proofed to accommodate any systems and technologies, is redundant and reliable, and will provide a conduit for future applications and services.
We call this the Smart Community Revolution!
