With over 20 years of experience as an global IT leader, I’ve created value for public and private equity firms in IT Strategy, Global Business Process, Cyber Security, Digital Transformation IoT, Data Science, mergers and acquisitions, public company data protection and compliance. I’ve developed several global, multi-year IT strategies to align and enable business objectives and key financial targets.

My goal is to bring technology to businesses that need a digital strategy. Along with years of real world experience, I hold a BA in Finance and Mathematics, as well as Master of Business Administration and am experienced in business and technology solutions. These strengths allow me to deliver value added solutions to multi-national firms, on-time and within budget.
