I now have over 48 years plus of a wide and varied experience from working in Building & Remodeling and Theatre Design & Technology trades ranging from working in this trades years ago to project management and general business consulting as well as the development of web-based marketing today.

A little history…Back in 1986, I founded Eastlake Associates to pursue my interests and personal directions in designing and building. In 1988 I changed the company name and incorporated as Paradigm Associates Ltd. (now known as Paradigm Building & Remodeling) and proceeded to build a diversified project portfolio with special expertise and skills applicable in residential interiors & exteriors, store & restaurant interiors, trade show & museum exhibits, themed environments, as well as computer technology.

In January of 2003, I split the company into Paradigm Building & Remodeling and Paradigm Projects became where I would pursue the applications of information technology as it relates to business and project management.

I have some 35 plus years of experience both studying and practicing Critical Path Project Management (CPM) and somewhere around 16 years of experience with the more modern application of Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) method which is based on the principles of Theory of Constraints management.

I’m also the primary developer behind the 360 Difference line of FileMaker Pro software solutions for builder remodelers and construction industry trade contractors

In addition my construction industry trade skills and business acumen I’m also a skilled artist/ illustrator,ArrowOut and theatrical set & lighting designer.ArrowOut

Since the late 1990s I’ve been writing about my thoughts on the industry in my Quietly Re-Thinking Out Loud: Exploring New Paradigms for How We Manage What We Build blog.

(Primus Inter Pares — a Latin phrase meaning “First Among Equals” that I first picked up on reading reading the introduction to Patrick McKenna’s and David Maister’s book First Among Equals: How to Manage a Group of Professionals. years ago. When I am working with a team I have assembled  to handle a project or problem even if I am the designated leader I still always see myself as no better than a “First Among Equals“)
