Key Accomplishments

My prior experience working in custom software consulting for numerous firms, across multiple industries, and in an array of technologies provides me with a unique perspective. Having a strong technical background coupled with a history of custom efforts allows me to quickly distill down new prospective projects, identify the critical elements, and potential pitfalls. In addition, my business background allows me to properly weigh the cost/benefit aspects. Finally, having excellent people skills enables me work efficiently with both tech-level and CXO-level alike, and to effectively communicate up and down an organization.
