Technology Leader • Public Speaker
Cloud Evangelist • EdTech Entrepreneur
Currently based in Arlington, Virginia, just a couple miles outside of downtown DC, I am working on an initiative to help students learn in ways they have never learned before and providing them access to tools and systems to prepare for graduation.
I am an experienced, commercially-aware technologist with experience in education, public utilities, start-ups, and EdTech. In over 20 years of experience, I have had the opportunity to work around the world solving business and technology problems for both big and small organizations. I have led technology strategic planning sessions for the world's largest advanced waste water treatment facility and have developed product roadmaps for multiple start-up companies. Most recently I have been working with one of the world's largest public universities running daily operations and setting the roadmap and vision for cloud intiatives focused on supporting a global student population.
I am interested in the way technology can connect, support, and level the playing field in education. I enjoy finding ways to connect a topic or technology with how people are learning and developing their skill sets.
Recently, I've had the opportunity to speak at events like Educause, AWS reInvent, Zenoss GalaxZ, and UBTech. Each has been a fantastic experience and a great opportunity to connect with people around the world.
In each of my experiences, I have brought creativity, innovation and commitment to the solutions developed in support of the organizations goals.
