CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
In 1990, before the primordial internet was formally opened to the public,
I co-founded a Bulletin Board Service (BBS) called Public Data Network. Our claim to fame was the invention of chat technology called “Chatlink!” that connected BBS providers into the world’s largest BBS chat network with users in over 80 countries worldwide.
As the Internet grew, BBS systems became obsolete and many BBS providers evolved into ISPs. Public Data Network evolved into an ISP but we also developed a unique technology to wholesale local and national ISP hardware facilities. This gave birth to “Virtual ISPs” that could offer ISP services without the massive ISP hardware investment. We then developed software they could use to activate and invoice their subscribers. That’s how Visp.net came to life in April 1996.
Since then, our team continues to innovate billing and automation solutions for ISPs. VISP supports growth with an industry-leading service team dedicated to extraordinary service and LEAN principles to increase ISP margins and make the lives of ISP operators easier.
In my spare time, I study fitness, nutrition, longevity, history, physics, permaculture, philosophy, psychology and blockchain technologies. I’m driven by a personal mission to improve life for my family and friends and to make the world a better place. I love spending quality time with my beautiful wife Lowella raising our three sons and two adopted children.
CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER
In my daily work, I utilize Lean principles to benefit both Visp and our clients by helping to create better processes and procedures to make the best use of our development and technology resources. Ultimately, this leads to less waste, faster production times and overall better satisfaction for our clients.
A value that informs my life and career, and one of the things that attracted me to Visp is the “I” which stands for integrity. I’m a big believer in living up to one’s word and strive to do that every day.
I studied Electrical Engineering at the University of New Mexico, graduating with a BSEE. I am also certified in Project Engineering. I currently live in Fort Worth, TX with my wife and son, and have a daughter in college. You can find me staying busy with family activities, soccer and off-roading in my heavily modified ‘77 IH Scout.
DIRECTOR OF ORGANIZATION COORDINATION
Apart from developing software and websites, I fulfill my passion for blogging, videography and photography during my free time.
DIRECTOR OF PAYMENT SOLUTIONS
I joined the Visp.net team as a director and product owner of our new Payment Solutions department in Q4 of 2021. Before Visp, I was a business owner of SecurTech, specializing in security, CCTV, and computer repairs. I stumbled into payment processing 15 years ago by chance and have loved every moment. Since then, I have made it my full-time profession by working exclusively with ISPs and telcos for the past seven years. I work hands-on with our onboarding department to ensure our ISPs receive a smooth onboarding experience while managing partner relationships and revenues for the company.
I recognize and value clients’ trust as I strive daily to exceed their expectations. My experiences throughout my life have instilled in me the discipline it takes to build confidence in meeting goals and building rapport, while applying my expertise and market knowledge in a rapidly evolving, high-profile space to serve our ISPs. I love the core values Visp promotes to its ISPs, striving to live by them daily.
My goal with Visp is to revolutionize the market regarding processing payments and shape the future of our ISPs while extending our ‘white glove’ service promise to maximize our partnerships with our ISPs to the fullest. Visp.net’s expanding suite of products and features is everchanging and growing, as are the methods to process those payments for our subscribers.
