Executive Summary

Originating from the SF Bay Area (Silicon Valley), I have been in technology for over 25 years - 10 of which I've been working as a successful self-employed independent consultant. I’ve worked extensively on a global basis for everything from aggressive start-ups to very large global players (i.e. UniLever, Philip Morris, Broken Hill Proprieties - BHP, Digital Equipment, IBM, Cisco, CitiBank, Travelers, The GAP, Bank of America, etc.)

Because technology is so pervasive, I have worked in several industries (banking, travel, consumer products, insurance, real estate, shipping, pharmaceutical, communications and technology - to name a few). My ability to swiftly adapt to new technologies, and interface with customers is very strong. I have also been successful at quickly identifying the needs of customers and providing complete solutions in a professional manner.

I pride myself on the strong relationships I build with my clients and the professional work ethics I abide by. I have worked with most of the main stream technologies (telephony, networks, office automation, financial systems, etc.) and I have a strong grasp of full business cycle practices (conceptual, architecture, needs analysis, projects, work flow, strategies, planning, deployment, etc.)

I fully believe that technology is only a tool (and a powerful one at that!), and businesses need to learn how to use that tool more effectively. With my unique mixture of strong interpersonal and communication skills, combined with a very solid understanding of technology as a whole, I have been successful in helping companies realize this goal.
