Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Tuesday 30th Nov4:00 PM (GMT)

I’m based in Winston-Salem, NC and have over 25 years of experience in the enterprise technology industry. I’ve been an entrepreneur, consultant, product and services leader, and currently serve as a fractional or interim product executive through my company, Trigr Innovation. In the past I've not only been an early contributor to several successful startups, but I have worked across functional and geographic boundaries of larger firms. I recently led technology engagements and a large internal transformation project at Publicis Sapient, and previously I served as COO and Head of Product for MissionMode, where I built and ran a multi-tiered global communications platform to facilitate enterprise collaboration and crisis management. Earlier in my career, I drove product innovation and delivery at firms like PLATINUM technology, BroadVision and IBM. I hold a degree in Computer Science and Engineering from MIT, plus a minor in Music. I volunteer for organizations promoting the arts, entrepreneurship and STEM education, advise a number of technology startups, and am a mentor and board member for startup accelerator programs in North Carolina.
