I’m Judy Hertz and I have more than 30 years’ progressive, hands-on experience with just about every aspect of information and Internet technologies — with a focus on projects involving climate data.
After sitting for my 100-ton U.S. Coast Guard Ocean Operator (captain’s) license, my Series 7 National Association of Securities Dealers exam and working as an IT Project and UNIX Systems manager at NASA Headquarters, I founded Riotsystems in 1996 when I began freelancing.
