Biography

I'm looking for new opportunities to grow my skills and achieve project success. Collaborating with dynamic, intelligent people is a critical aspect for my work. I add value to every organization I've been associated with; providing quality project outcomes and increased efficiency. Mentoring colleagues and friends inspires me and provides a great sense of satisfaction. 
I believe in open and creative environments where employees, managers, and senior staff participate in a cohesive company philosophy. The valued companies I have worked for including Hewlett Packard, Cisco Systems, and First Republic Bank exude this excellence in business culture.
I'm currently looking for opportunities to grow my skill set in the dynamic social, mobile, and collaboration spaces. My latest projects evaluated social collaborative platforms like Salesforce, Jive, and Moxie software to enhance productivity to a major financial organization.
