I founded ALTIUS Communications in 2005 with the vision of becoming the premier distributor and integrator in the wireless broadband market. Since our founding in 2005, ALTIUS Communications has provided more than 500 customers with wireless broadband equipment. ALTIUS' customers include wireless ISPs, international corporations, government agencies and multiple branches of the United States military. I subsequently founded ALTIUS Broadband and began a wireless ISP operation in Northern Maryland. Since that time, ALTIUS Broadband acquired a wireless network in rural Kentucky and has expanded that initial coverage to now cover more than 1,000 square miles with high speed Internet access in eastern Kentucky.
In 2012 I acquired the assets of Digital Bridge Communications in Indiana under the BridgeMAXX brand. BridgeMAXX provides cutting edge high speed Internet access using WiMAX & LTE technologies in both licensed and unlicensed spectrum in Richmond, Liberty, Connersville and Washington Indiana. We then acquired 2 other wireless networks in Indiana bringing our total subscriber count to over 5,000 and covering 6,000 square miles of Indiana. After acquiring another wireless network in SW Florida, we have grown organically into OH, eastern shore of MD and DE.
I have served on the board of directors of the Rural Broadband Task Force, a committee within the WCA trade association and is also active within the WISPA trade organization. I received my BS degree in Business from Towson University in Towson, MD in 1988.
