I'm passionate about the intersection of disruptive technology, the potential of people and creating a positive impact on society. I've been fortunate to work in three amazing organizations - from a startup to a turnaround and then to the industry leader. I've worked beside great industry leaders and built teams to improve outcomes in business, government, education and healthcare. I apply these experiences and skills to help your organization solve for gaps and drive successful business outcomes.
