The Head Honcho… your main point man.
This is My Story
I have a utility belt full of programming languages (like Batman but for coding). I’m into Local SEO, Lead Generation, Affiliate Sales, Email Marketing and promotions. I have a database of all my knowledge on databases; it has indexes on key elements and filegroups separated across different RAID arrays – performance baby. I’m a keywording SEO junkie fascinated by the new influence of Social Media / Social Networking / Engagers. I practice code fu. Oh, I’ve also done actual Kung Fu – Citong Shaolin Kung Fu. I’ve done martial arts for a large majority of my life. I studied Taekwondo for 15 years in my youth; earning a black belt and eventually worked hard enough to earn a gold medal in the Junior Olympics. My son recently started Taekwondo so after nearly 20 years away I’ve returned to my roots and have started training again. I meditate daily and find mindfulness meditation has brought a quality of presence to my life that is amazing.
I’m the proud father of a fantastic little boy. He’s incredibly smart, both intellectually (he’s in the gifted program at his school) and emotionally. When he’s with me we wrestle, play Xbox, and go for adventures with NERF guns in the woods behind our house. I’m his father, but he’s perhaps the greatest teacher I’ve ever had. I have a fantastic woman in my life; she’s full of more energy than I could possibly explain (no seriously, the woman can talk like you wouldn’t believe). She’s deep, compassionate, and full of life.
I’m an Android enthusiast… that means that I break my phone often tweaking and overclocking it (note to self: remember to NAND backup first!). My youth was spent spending time doing martial arts or sitting with my mom while my sister did dance lessons. While I never took lessons, I love to dance; it’s when I feel most free. The rapidly shifting landscape of social media is my latest fascination born from IT.
I code. I run. I love. I meditate. I dance.
I’ve been known to remodel airports on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I manage my time efficiently, I write award-winning opera, and translate ethnic slurs for North Korean refugees.
Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. When I’m bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. Thanks to my ginger playmate I know the exact location of every food item in the grocery store (yes, including real butter). With this knowledge I plot my shopping list on my smartphone for maximum efficiency. I’ve performed several covert ops for the CIA, the details of which I cannot share or I’d be forced to kill you. While on vacation in Belize, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery.
I pay all my bills as they arrive and always on-time. I have a gold medal in full-contact origami. In college I discovered the meaning of life. Sadly, I forgot to write it down. I breed prizewinning shrimp and enjoy books… they are like the Internet but made of trees. I ponder who is smarter, Jesus or Buddha, in terms of not letting himself get crucified. No, this last part is not all original but has been modified to fit me and is hilarious.

@Gende, we had a critical ASP web application that Paul was responsible for launching. His attention to detail was amazing. He was able to present a finished product well within the project deadline and provided great follow-on service. I wish I had more projects that I could assign to him. I would recommend him to anyone!
While working with Paul Spoerry at NaviSys, which later became Genelco Software Solutions, I was greatly impressed with his focus, attention to detail, dedication to projects, organizational skills and company pride. During the 5 years I worked alongside Paul, I worked in both the Human Resources and Marketing departments. I supported Paul with his HR and Marketing needs but also appreciated his creative ideas and eagerness to volunteer for multiple committees and large scale projects (e.g. the annual user conference).
I have had the opportunity to watch Paul grow in his career with a continued investment in professional and personal growth. He is extremely talented and a pleasure to work with, on any level.
Converica hired Paul to create our website. Having personally worked with Paul before, he met my high expectations. He was easy to communicate with, knowledgeable of options available, and ensured we were pleased with the final outcome.
I had the pleasure to have Paul work for me while at NaviSys. At NaviSys we provided commerical software for the life insurance industry and it was important to have individuals with a strong business sense, strong technically and the ability to work directly with the end customer. Paul excelled in each of these areas and was a valuable resource for our organization.
Paul is a knowledgeable technician. I am a marketing individual who must rely on the expertise of technicians like Paul to explain and recommend solutions to technical issues that has to do with the Internet. My job involves keeping our Web site humming and moving/using new technologies. Paul breaks down the technical information for me and gives me options to choose from. He also does troubleshooting and provides solutions to issues. Paul is smart, witty and fun to work with. I would recommend him in a technical role as well as a leadership role as he is able to see the small, intricate details as well as who those details affect the big picture.
Working on projects with Paul is always enjoyable. While professional and focused on the customer needs or end result, he also brings a great sense of humor to the project that sets participants at ease. He easily establishes good working relationships with customers and co-workers alike. He pays attention to detail and is always accountable. Never one to play the “blame game,” I’ve always known Paul to dig in and work with others regardless of “boundaries” to get the job done right. He is passionate about technology and always looking to use the latest advancements or techniques to the project’s benefit. If you need a web and/or SQL application architected or improved, i highly recommend having this Web & SQL Ninja chop it down to size!
Paul is one of the finest technical resources I have ever had the opportunity to work with. Paul excels at design and technical leadership and is always willing to take on big challenges. Paul is a must have resource on any project.
It’s been a decade since I worked with Paul. At the time, he was one of the most knowledgable, most reliable, and friendliest people you will ever meet. We keep in touch, and he has picked up something new every time we meet. I would be happy to work with him again.
