Taz Lake
Technology Consultant. Author.
Instructor. Screenwriter/Producer.

I am a genre-defying, collaborative, digital leader serving as a costumed engineer in Atlanta. A passion for emerging web technologies tore me away from medicine and science early in my career. After 20+ years I still go where needed to help organizations improve.
Digital. Technical. Professional.

I am a technologist, author, instructor and entrepreneur. After attending high school in Hawaii I graduated as a dual pre-med Chemistry and Art major at Duke University. After an early turn to a technology career – and a couple of other masters degrees in communications, anthropology, information systems and business – I’ve been blessed to be in a technology career I love.

I like to say I'm a genre-defying meat popsicle because of the many hats I've worn.  Award-winning employee at numerous large companies. Top-rated instructor at two universities. Formal mentor. Technical program manager. Web technology specialist. Published author. Screenwriter. Business owner. Board member for multiple non-profits and associations.

I’m comfortable with this go anywhere approach. As the son of an enlisted Marine and first of my family to go to college – the mission has always mattered.

After selling part of my company, I now use Brightmill Labs to experiment with tiny trials to prove big ideas.

I have enjoyed diverse pursuits including martial arts, chess, watercolor painting, singing and telling jokes that make my engineer wife and teenage daughter roll their eyes. In my "spare time" you'll still find me watching college basketball, playing chess or reading up on the latest technology for automobiles, military aircraft, nuclear power,  and artificial intelligence.

Let me know how I can help you next.
