Hi! I’m Jamie Dennis. Thanks for stopping by.
Allow me to introduce myself. I’m just a Southern Ohio boy, born and raised in Chillicothe, OH (about 45 miles south of Columbus on US Route 23). I now reside in Delray Beach, Florida.
I am a Transformative Solution Architect and experienced Information Technology professional with over 25 years of proven success as an Individual Contributor, Manager, and Consultant in business and technical environments for major financial service, insurance, automotive, healthcare, and information service companies. I’ve traveled widely, worked in many organizations of varying sizes, and learned something every step of the way.
I do not claim to be an expert on anything – I reserve that title for those who create and improve technology, but I’ve been successful throughout my career by applying common sense to complex problems, whether those be technology problems or people problems. I continue to learn on a daily basis, which is the nature of a career in Information Technology, and life as a Pre-Sales Consultant/Solution Architect.
While I have expertise in Systems Administration, Systems engineering, as well Infrastructure Architecture and Solutions Architecture, and Disaster Recovery, that is just the tip of the iceberg. I've always been a person who likes to build relationships, whether a person is in the same field as I am, or works in a profession which is 180 degrees from my specialty. I am a life-long learner, and enjoy talking with people in all professions to learn about what they do.
In my chosen field, I enjoy working with IT professionals to introduce disruptive technologies which can dramatically impact their business in a positive manner. The more difficult the challenge, the better I like it.
This website, and the content herein, are essentially my hobby. In the 1990's, I did extensive Genealogical research to trace my origins, and had this information online until my service provider at the time went out of business. Since then, I have kept the archives from my old site in hopes of one day re-hosting it. I finally found the time, and that was the basis for the other pages here in my site.
The greatest joy in my life is being married to my beautiful wife Darla for over 36 years, and having 2 great sons, 2 wonderful daughters-in-law, and 3 grandchildren. I love hiking, bird watching, visiting Scenic Wetlands sites, parks and preserves, and historical sites. There is nothing like the solitude and relaxation of visiting one of these sites and communing with nature. If you are quiet when you walk through (preferably at a leisurely pace, not speed walking like I've seen so many do), you can catch nature at its finest, seeing all sorts of Gods creatures. I've taken many photos and videos of exotic birds, reptiles, and animals in my time during the early morning hours.
Additionally, I am a huge football fan. I'm not huge, but my love of football is. I'm a lifelong fan of the Washington Redskins, win or lose, and of the Ohio State University Buckeyes. I also follow the Texas Longhorns and the South Carolina Gamecocks, and love watching college football no matter what teams are playing.
Well, that's enough about me...
