Bio

Ever since becoming a home technology professional in 1995, I have been a home tech evangelist. My career began in retail, yet quickly evolved to the custom installation-side of the industry. I excelled in educating homeowners, their design team, and construction teams on the lifestyle and safety enhancements of properly designed and installed home technology systems. This includes:

▶ Audio Video Systems
▶ Home Theater / Media Rooms
▶ Smart Home / Home Automation
▶ Home Monitoring
▶ IT Networks / Wi-Fi
▶ Lighting Controls
▶ Motorized Shading
▶ Security & Surveillance
▶ Access Control
▶ Energy Management
▶ Audiophile Music Systems
▶ Communications (telephone & intercom systems)

I transitioned to the technology consulting & design-side of the industry in 2015. One of my tasks was to introduce well-qualified home technology installers to a project; companies that have a track record of installation excellence, customer service, and a positive industry reputation.

With this background informing me, I am proud to now head the Home Technology Association (HTA). The Home Technology Association is a certification organization committed to improving the consumer experience by helping homeowners identify, compare, and select the right home technology and smart home installation firms for their needs.

Through an informational website, homeowners will be able to create sample home technology installation budgets and compare multiple firms’ capabilities. Our certification process distinguishes installers with a track record of excellence in technical competence, financial responsibility, customer service, and positive industry reputation. We are the only association in the CI industry that certifies COMPANIES, not individuals.

The best technology integration firms have always wanted a legitimate and 3rd party way to separate themselves from the sea of mediocre (or worse) firms destroying the reputation of the CI industry, now they can have it if HTA Certified.
