Professional Biography

As a twenty year veteran of the technology industry I’ve seen it all. From startups to Fortune 100 companies… From the days of the static web where it was uncommon to have a database, to modern Web 2.5 where everyone has a database in their pocket. I’ve developed apps and managed development projects, enterprise cloud infrastructure environments and middleware system integrations. I’ve been in technology sales and user-level technical support as well as taught in both classroom and e-learning environments.

All of this experience in different areas has helped me to bring positive impact to every project through added versatility and maintaining a high level of relational perspective. My experiences have also helped ensure smooth communication with the teams I’ve worked with.

Allow me to bring my experience at ten (10) Fortune 1000 companies (Apple Inc, Cintas, General Electric, Kroger, Scripps Networks Interactive (owners of Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel and other high provile media properties), and others), and my multi-role perspective into your organization to help bring positive momentum to your project, rollout or environment support.
