Hello! I'm an Information Technology Professional and Manager with experience managing information technology teams and infrastructures. From my first computer (Apple II) to designing complex system infrastructures, my background in information technology operations, strategy, design, and project management keeps me competitive.
I strive for job excellence that is fueled by my passion for understanding the nuances of the information technology ecosystems. I consider myself a ‘forever student,’ eager to build on my academic foundations and stay in tune with the latest strategies.
Of the teams I have managed, I've improved the team's productivity by implementing strategic project management strategies and ensuring a work-life balance for people. I believe mindfulness in the workplace is key to success - a tenet I live out through my interests in online gaming, outdoor sports, sports cars, and occasional lawn work.
