Jim Livingston



Who is Jim Livingston?

Born in the age of Disco I grew up torn between two worlds. One was my life on a small subsistence farm on the outskirts of Salem, Oregon and the alternative dazzling entrapment of big city Portland less than an hours drive away. This diversity of schemas would contribute greatly to who I am today; evident by my Jack-of-all-trades ability, commitment to details and processes, as well as my persistent exploration of multiple vantage points.

Enriched by an abundant life I have laid my head to rest in many places. Some of the more memorable pillows include the tiny island of Ketchikan, Alaska; the arduous Sand Hill Barracks in Fort Benning, Georgia; the Highlands of Scotland; and the provincial capital of Latina, Italy.

I have held many positions outside of the Tech Sector, including Project Management. At each I have leveraged my technological prowess to enhance the company. I am driven by a profound sense of service. It is my sincere ambition to help others and it is why I continue to seek out opportunities where I can make a difference.
