About Don Draper

View my Linked-In Profile

I am a retired software developer and entrepreneur living in Atlanta, GA. I started Draper Consulting, Inc in 1998 and co-founded AdminiTrack Inc. back in 2000. AdminiTrack was sold to Tracware LTD (UK) in late 2023 and may now be accessed as AdminiTrac.

Welcome to my blog. Here you will find a variety of topics ranging from technical to fun to personal. Use the categories listing on the right to locate topics that might match your interest. I plan to post more now that I have additional time.

For many years I was  a consultant and technical trainer speaking at conferences both in the US and abroad. I love technology, database design, system architectures and programming, especially web-based applications. I possess 40 years of information technology experience in medical, corporate and government environments. I focused on growing my businesses with technologies including SQL Server, ASP.NET, Web Services and more. I served as CTO for AdminiTrack.com (now AdminiTrac) and led the migration into new technologies such as moving from a large datacenter to AWS cloud hosting in 2017. I have always loved what I do so much that I have never worked a day in my life. Now that I am retired, I still continue to enjoy technology and more by supporting a site I created for a large volunteer group for the local sheriff’s office, working with photography, video editing, drone videography, traveling with my wife and visiting our kids and our precious granddaughter.

I hold two degrees from Auburn University in Medical and Laboratory Technology. After doing my internship at Tallahassee Memorial Medical Center I became certified as a Medical Technologist (MT-ASCP) and worked at the University of Alabama Medical Center in Birmingham (UAB) for several years before transferring into the IT field and moving to Atlanta. There I worked as a consultant for a large hospital IS vendor and later as an independent consultant. Over the years I have served many clients including Yale University Hospital, Vencor, TRW, Northrop Grumman and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). I taught myself programming using the Radio Shack TRS-80 and the Apple IIe. Technology has come a long way and I have been blessed to work at what I love. I hope that you have found the same happiness and contentment as much as I have.

I am abundantly blessed with a great marriage and two adult children. My wife Liz used to be a corporate V.P. and executive running businesses for a publicly traded company but left corporate life to earn a Masters in Anesthesiology at Emory University. She now works as an anesthetist serving Northside Hospitals here in Atlanta. We are members of Perimeter Church where we worship and serve our community. I serve in a few ways including being a Perimeter officer serving on the deaconate (Deacon Care Team) and more. I continually thank God for my undeserved blessings, grace, mercy and for the opportunities to serve in His name.
