Began working as an MS Access Developer at a company called Castleton, which provided temporary housing for corporate travelers. I got my feet wet in database programming while working on their very large MS Access based reservation system.

I was also selling computers that I would build at the same time, and used Excel to create quotes. This was very cumbersome and hard to locate past quotes, update quotes, and track serial numbers sold.

Using my knowledge gained in working on Castleton's reservation system, I began work on my own quoting database program, just for my use! Eventually, the systems grew to be able to handle customer quotes and serial numbers quite nicely.

After making it user-friendly, and adding a menu system, I released my creation to all as a shareware program: PC Reseller System!!

I then used PC Reseller System as the basis for creating a more robust / pro version called Instant Quote 2000 (and later Instant Quote Professional).

And the rest, as they say, is history!
