Throughout my career I have been a passionate advocate for turning disruptive new technologies into competitive advantage by extending them to your investment in existing systems, while understanding and finding ways to mitigate and reduce the risks associated with these opportunities.

I have a quick, deep grasp of technology and I'm able to see how different levels of a complex stack interact and can be changed to improve business function.

I understand business, and can work within a customer's business constraints to ensure that the solution I architect, design and/or build is right-sized to the customer's needs.

I'm always thinking security and privacy and recoverability as I work with my customers.

I'm a pragmatist who will happily use the most appropriate technologies, often from multiple vendors, to architect, design and/or build the best solution possible with the best components available.

I can work with end users, marketing staff, patent lawyers, board room and executives, as well as technical people, and have a track record of improving communications between these groups.

I am a technical evangelist, who has extensive experience using multiple media to educate and recruit new markets and customers to complex new solutions.
