George is certified by Crystal Decisions (formerly Seagate Software) as both a trainer and consultant for Crystal Reports, and he received the Seagate 1998-1999 Training Partner of the Year award.

After more than 10 years as an internal consultant and trainer in a large corporation, George founded his own consulting and training firm, The ABLAZE Group, in 1994. His first project was a large Visual Basic/Crystal Reports project for a major west-coast bank. Since then he has trained, consulted, and developed custom software for large and small clients around the United States, Canada, and Europe.

George's career in computers began in 1978 when he purchased his first personal computer (a Radio Shack TRS-80) and taught himself to program in one of the earliest versions of Microsoft BASIC. Prior to his computer career, George was a broadcaster by trade. You may still hear George on national radio and television where he is the voice of various commercial and promotional campaigns.
