A few years ago, I was working my way through some popular books on evolutionary biology, genetics, and other topics. Somewhere in there, I re-watched the movie, The Matrix. During the movie, I had an epiphany that led to the creation of this book.

Fortunately, I have spent my business career being the intermediary between Fortune 500 clients with complex business challenges and software providers with potential technology solutions. With degrees from the Johns Hopkins University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a background in economics, systems analysis, and transformation consulting, I have been able to apply my analytical, writing, and presentation skills in the development of Welcome to Our Real Matrix.
