Current Role

Career Timeline

I’m a technology leader with a focus on aligning the strategy of the business with the execution of technology. I lead teams and projects with that focus always on top of mind. My entire career has been spent collaborating with business owners to execute successful projects for our customers. Whether as a developer or a team leader, for the majority of the projects over my career I have been directly responsible for the delivery and performance of the solution in the eyes of the customer. I’m unique in that while highly technical, I have been customer-facing my entire career and I have a polished and professional communication style.

I have over 20 years of experience delivering successful Web-Based Solutions using Cloud-Based Platforms and Strategies. I understand the complex relationship of scale, cost, operational support for a solution and it is my job to right-size these aspects for the greater organization and our customers.

I always lead with a team mentality, we succeed and fail together. We support each other, we avoid silo’s, and encourage open honest communication… even then those discussions are difficult. I believe that anything worth doing is worth measuring, as such, I believe real-time publically available KPIs & prioritized backlogs are an important part of the relationship between IT and the greater organization. Technology is a costly and highly strategic part of any organization and with that comes a responsibility to show value and work transparently.
