Bruce Gandy

Welcome

First of all, I’m not a world-reknowned bagpiper! Although that’s usually what you get when you Google “Bruce Gandy”. So who am I?

Well, I designed and built this website (because that’s one of the things I do for fun and profit) so, yes, I’m into Information Technology. And I took  another self-portrait for the headshot here in July of 2015, so yep, I’m into photography.  (Actually, Cindy took it this time.  But I cropped it and put in the background!)

That’s it?

Nah. I’m a Business Analyst, Project Manager, a Lotus Notes/Domino Consultant, Google Developer and Admin, a Teacher, a Writer, a Singer and spent the first part of my adult life earning my living as a professional actor/director/writer. When the roads are clear, I ride my bike every day (Spring through Fall) because there’s nothing more relaxing than riding a bicycle. Unless the wind is whipping and it’s 11° above zero. (Not that it’s stopped me before.)

So, take a look around and thanks for stopping by.

Always good to hear from old friends or make new ones.

While my family tree has extensive roots in the British Isles, and I enjoy listening to the pipes, I wouldn’t know how to play them if my life depended on it. So if you’re looking for THAT Bruce Gandy, I suggest that you return to the Google results page.

What I AM is the first-born of six siblings, father of one daughter, step-father of two sons, enamored of my wife, Lucinda “Cindy” Pitcher, mentor, technologist, writer, bicyclist, friend to the poor, enemy of the wicked, defender of the planet, and singer of songs. And sometimes I get a little carried away with my descriptions. Oh well.

Growing up in rural southern New Jersey (however, we did have a traffic light), I then graduated from Montclair State University with a major in English — what, you thought I was going to start at the beginning? Prior to graduation I took a course in acting and the acting bug bit me. Halfway through my junior year, I changed my major from Chemistry to English, graduated and headed off to New York to make my fortune in showbiz.

Well, it wasn’t a fortune but I was making a living in showbiz. Finally, since I had taken a course in word processing and had started “temping”, that led me to other technologies and before I knew it, the computer bug really bit me. In 1990, I withdrew from the three acting unions (and started working in community theater), set up my first company, started teaching technology, buying PCs, hiring others, learning everything I could about computers. I earned technical certifications and literally taught technology around the US and around the world (London, Nigeria, Canada).

I built my company based on Lotus Notes/Domino as my technology of choice and focused on developing systems for the company. Because Domino has a web component, this led me to website development also.

So, if you’re looking for a pigeon-hole that I fit into — wrong guy. I bring passion and expertise to everything I do. The experience I’ve gained from all of my choices: managing a company, managing projects, application development, faith in God, a wonderful wife and family, showbusiness and all the many jobs I had while trying to succeed there, has allowed me to feel comfortable and confident in any task. Except maybe, playing the bagpipes. But then, I never really tried. Hmm.
