Biography

Highly successful Agilist and IT Manager in Aviation, Insurance, Finance, and Military industries. Augmented by a strong background in being human. Maximized varied experiences and multiple opportunities to create a foundation to be successful in any environment: Executive to front-line, technical to administrative, operations to policy management. Continually learning and evaluating new technologies and methodologies to ensure continued improvements in my ability to support my team in any way I can. Experience and education align to be adaptable in many roles. My military career gave me an excellent foundation and loads of experience in dealing with people up and down an organizational chain, high pressure situations and constantly changing scenarios. It has served me well over the years in dealing in "agile" environments. The bright minds I've been afforded to work with in the corporate sector have shown me how important it is to stay educated on the latest techniques and technologies.
