Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Friday 28th Jan4:00 PM (GMT)

I am a technology-focused business leader with over 15 years of experience building teams, defining and executing strategy, and delivering SaaS platforms within highly-regulated, mission-critical, and high-visibility industries. Over my career I have driven product development and launches to Fortune 500 clients and millions of users in B2B, B2C, and B2G markets. I ensure that the right product gets built the right way (in the right amount of time), and have been trusted to make the hard choices that go along with running scrappy startups. I love the challenge of taking on the big hairy goals - technological, organizational, or social - and bringing order to the chaos that usually comes while pursuing them! My passion is in leading great teams to achieve incredible outcomes, and I specialize in conceptualizing, evangelizing, selling, building, deploying, and running SaaS products and web apps in regulated, quality-critical, and high-security industries. I've been successful in aerospace and defense, intelligence, logistics, supply chain, legal services, and elections, and am looking forward to figuring out and conquering another industry! :) I have also presented on election and tech topics at conferences like SXSW and to government leaders. Outside of work I enjoy travel, skiing, and collecting whiskey. I earned a BS in Computer Science from Harvey Mudd College.
