I began planning for my podcast series by listing all the people I knew in business who I wanted to interview. Jonathan Wilber was one of the first people I put on that list which grew to nearly 50 names. Even though I could have done the interview over the phone or via Skype, I wanted to wait until I could do it in person, across the table from Jon in his Bethesda, Maryland office.

I got that opportunity a couple of weeks ago when he hired me to shoot photos of the culmination of the celebration of his company’s ten years in business. Master Key Consulting is a provider of IT and training services to the federal government. In full disclosure, I worked for Master Key part time and then full time ending over five years ago.

Menominee Indian Tribe of WisconsinLeaving Master Key Consulting was a difficult decision for me, but I knew that someday I would again have the pleasure of serving Jonathan Wilber, a man of impeccable character and unmatched skill as an inspiring business leader. The weekend I spent with Jon, his family and employees was highlighted by getting to know some of his fellow members of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. He brought a contingent of them to Washington, DC to put the exclamation point on the celebration. Native dancers and singers and a historian presented their art, history and culture at the National Museum of the American Indian, documented here on Master Key Consulting’s Flickr account.
