After consulting for several years throughout the southeast, Dean relocated to Denver, Colorado, where he started his first IT consulting company, Technology Blueprint.
Almost overnight, Technology Blueprint grew into a key services provider for the worldwide technology distributor, ScanSource Services Group. As a result of his partnership with ScanSource, Dean’s focus briefly shifted from Wi-Fi to providing voice over IP network assessments and other layer 2 and 3 network consulting services to a global customer base. The approval of the 802.11e standard introduced Quality of Service to Wi-Fi applications and with that, Dean found himself merging his skillsets of Wi-Fi networking and VoIP.
Dean holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from the Pennsylvania State University. His Wi-Fi accreditations include a CWNA certification as well as Ruckus WiSE Level 1 certification. He has provided consulting to a wide array of industries including manufacturing, oil and gas, hospitality, and education.
Currently based out of Reno, Nevada, Dean travels extensively throughout the world to provide Wi-Fi consulting services to Free Space’s clients. When he’s not busy consulting, he enjoys skiing, mountain biking, and spending time with his two dogs, Bones the Boxer and Zeke the Blue Heeler.
