Biography

I'm a seasoned technology professional with over 20 yrs of experience and over 10 yrs in consulting. I've been successful managing people, advising clients, optimizing business processes and guiding large technology projects from inception to post-delivery. Rising from the technical side, I've slowly migrated toward working more closely with the business teams, moving from developer to architect to PM to my current position, an Agile-Scrum Coach with Cognizant Technology Solutions.
