Guy is retired from IBM (and JPMorgan) where over the years he served in roles of IT Solution Architect in both services and sales organizations. He also spent a few years working in the FinTech industry for blockchain startup, R3 as a Director in Professional Services. Though retired, Guy maintains deep interest in environmental causes, especially in raising awareness of how humans are integrally connected to earth as one of its many biodiverse species. One of his first retirement activities was co-chairing the Rivers & Lakes committee as part of the IEEE Standards Association’s “Planet Positive 2030” initiative.
Guy has long been drawn to the outdoors, enjoying sea kayaking, hiking, and generally just being in nature. As a young man he achieved a BS degree in Forestry from Purdue University, after which achieving an MBA from Indiana University. Across his career Guy discovered the synergy of the IT skills and knowledge he acquired over the years, with the ecological awareness of earth’s natural resources. When it came to technical problem solving he could “see the forest for the trees”. ;)
Originally from Indiana, Guy and his Japanese wife, Atsuko (originally from Tokyo) moved from a longtime residence in Maplewood, NJ (NYC metro area) for the friendly small upstate South Carolina city of Greenville. Greenville has embraced us with its wonderful friendliness, and offered us its majestic outdoor surroundings from the local Swamp Rabbit trail system to the nearby big lakes and mountains, and the not so far away coast. We’re forever thankful for it all.
