About Us

Ascent Sports Technology has been involved with track and field, cross country and the road race industry for over 30 years.  It is our goal to provide professional and quality timing services at your events.  Quality events keep the running industry strong and growing in numbers.

            Background

 

The road started as a youth competing in track and field and continued on through college.  After college, I began teaching and coaching cross country and track and field at the high school level.

 

I later coached at the collegiate level and some youth programs.  I got involved with the Men's USATF Hurdle Development and worked with an exceptional group of coaches.

 

I worked in the road race industry from 1987 until 2001 in the San Francisco area.  We managed events like the Examiner Bay to Breakers, San Francisco Marathon, and San Jose Mercury News 10K, as a few on our list.

 

 In 1997 I started working with Record Timing and using the electronic timing systems.  That began my move toward the technical side of the sport.  In 2005 I went to work for Lynx System Developers and increased my depth of knowledge of the timing equipment and software.

            Experience

 

Working for Lynx System Developers from 2005 to 2015 gave me the opportunity to train photo finish and meet management groups of all levels in the United States and Internationally.  

 

I worked with a variety of timing and field event crews in the U.S. and Internationally, as well as, other timing companies in the U.S. I worked at competitions of all levels from Youth to Olympic Trials and National Championships indoor and outdoor.

 

The time spent providing technical support and troubleshooting technical issues for customers gave me a solid and thorough understanding of hardware and software as well as what is happing at events out in the field.

 

The desire to have a deeper understanding of some of the peripheral equipment steered me to developing a relationship with some of the scoreboard manufacturers.  I eventually learned to edit many of the scoreboard scripts and actually wrote a few scripts for some of the board manufacturers.
