The digital half of this dynamic partnership is Cary Stein, a web designer with an extensive and multifaceted history in the information technology industry.

Long before the Internet and e-mail became household names, Cary was venturing into the uncharted territory of the digital revolution that was to come. His early fascination with all things technological, and his interest in the growing opportunities presented by the IT industry, propelled him to train as a computer programmer, and later, to achieve industry certification.

Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, his first foray into IT was to launch and run a successful network consulting firm, AXXIS Technologies. In addition to devising highly tailored network solutions for several medium and large-sized companies, he also oversaw all aspects of the business, including sales, implementation, training and support.

His later endeavours in the IT sector allowed him to further develop his hardware and software expertise, to hone his troubleshooting, diagnostics and field support skills, and to become adept at developing tailored IT solutions for hundreds of companies and organizations. In his role as software trainer at ADP, the leading international provider of IT tools to the auto insurance industry, Cary created customized teaching tools that he used to effectively train thousands of customers on a variety of computer-related applications.

As the digital visionary of Summit Media Group, Cary has put his flair for interactive, comprehensive and visually pleasing graphics into high gear. With his competencies in Macromedia Dreamweaver, Flash, HTML, Java Script and e-commerce, and his passion for exploring the edges of innovation in web design, Cary is well-equipped to help entrepreneurs, companies and organizations promote their ideas and vision through an original and compelling Internet presence.
