Well, I suppose you want to know who I am? This slightly surprises me since if you are looking at this then you probably already know me, and if you stumbled onto me randomly, well then, welcome to my page.

My name is Ned.

I currently live in a suburb to the west of Boston, Massachusetts called Waltham. I grew up and have lived my entire life in the general Boston area. I went to college at Bentley College in Waltham, and after a very short stint as a renter in Newton for a year, I purchased a home on a nice dead end street in Waltham in 2002, I sold that house in 2010 and moved further west to Stow, MA into a house with my girlfriend. Then in 2013 we split up and I moved to Marlborough for a short time until I purchased a condo just off Main Street in Waltham at the end of 2013 where I now live.

I studied Computer Information Systems in college and have worked as a PC tech for a few computer training companies, as well as a system and network administrator. My strongest skill is trouble shooting and fixing problems. I also worked as an on the road consultant for the ERP software company Epicor Software for a little over 2 years. I was part of a layoff and went to work for a customer of Epicor as their ERP Administrator, and on site technical and facilities support. After a couple years there, I got an opportunity to move on to a consulting company doing a job similar to the one I did while at Epicor, the new consulting company was founded by a former VP of Epicor and they mainly support Epicor’s products along with Salesforce.com. I get to work from home as well as spend some time traveling to customer locations.

I like my job, my co-workers and my commute. No real complaints other than wishing I made more money, but isn’t that what everyone wants?

I am a very big sports fan of my home town teams, The Red Sox, Bruins, Patriots, and Celtics. I also love sports in general, I am a sports fan first, and a Boston Fan second. I was fortunate to be able to travel while working for Epicor, and because of that was able to see hundreds of minor league baseball games all around the country.

I am also an avid photographer, I will take photos of almost anything, but I am not a huge fan of being in the actual photos being taken. I keep an online collection of the majority of my photos on Flickr, but this is really only representative of about 25% of the actual photos I have taken. The majority of my photos are currently taken with my Canon 40D dSLR camera. I own 3 lenses right now, a stock 28-135mm lens, a 28-50mm and the other being a 70-300mm telephoto lens. I also use a small point and shoot camera for certain situations, a Panasonic Lumix that is mostly waterproof because my Kodak and Nikon I used to Have both met fates related to slightly more than minor water episodes. I like to take photos with my camera phone as well for updating my Twitter/Facebook status with an image, or for “Mr. Seal’s” adventures. I also purchased a Go-Pro Hero 3 Black in 2013 and have been experimenting with that.

I love to travel and have been most states in the US, as well as places like Paris, Ireland, Mexico, Aruba, Bahamas, Bermuda, along with several different places in Canada. I have traveled a lot for work, and some for pleasure, but even the work trips included personal time to explore. I have traveled to Toronto/Niagara Falls multiple times in 2008 and Washington DC in 2009 with my GF to see my Sox play, as well as to see the cities themselves. I have also been fortunate to see the Sox on the road in Cleveland, Chicago, Seattle and Minnesota. I also spent a week at Red Sox Fantasy Camp in 2009 at the old Ft. Meyers Spring Training Facilities and City of Palms Park. I hope to go back in the next couple years to play in the new complex at Jet Blue Park.

I also took a wonderful vacation in 2013 where I used a bunch of airline miles to get myself over to Munich, and then spend 2 weeks touring Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and France on a motorcycle with no real set plan, everything was day to day off the cuff without knowing where I was going to stay til about 24 hours in advance at the most. It was an incredible trip that I would like to recreate here in the US in a few different regions.

As far as Nedderweb goes, I first used it as an email address to route all my web email to when I created my first web page back in college. I figured I should keep my website related email separate from my personal email, and it has just kind of been there ever since, now it’s my full home on the web.

    I know you, but I still learned something new reading this. 🙂

    Hi Ned,

    I stumbled upon your page while searching for anything I could find on Epicor. I see that you worked for them for a little over 2 years. I was interested in possibly applying for the Business Development Rep. position but wanted to know more about it. I would greatly appreciate any information you could give me in regards to this. I am a Marketing and Spanish major who has been working in the rental industry for over 3 years and am looking for a change. I know nothing about the software industry but am very familiar with SPIN selling, as I spent a semester in college on it! It appears that this position involves a lot of travel. Could you expand on that? I’m not sure what position you held. I would love to hear the good and the bad about the job and/or company. Any info. you could send me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time.
