Summary

Having worked for several decades in the Technology Services industry, I have had the pleasure, as you’ll see in my experience, of implementing, enhancing, and servicing the technology used in a wide range of operations. I have a rare yet seasoned skill of rapid adaptability in the various environments where technology is used. In each work experience, I learned the utilized technology top to bottom and I learned the business operations end to end. I understood early on that I am delivering to the customer the best Technology Services possible when I thoroughly understand how their business operates. I am successful in the industry because I can facilitate any technology user’s path towards maximum efficiency in their position and, quite simply, I love to help people. I am a highly effective leader and incredibly proud to have had a role in launching hundreds of careers.
