What I Do
Innovate, create, streamline, build teams
I take the latest technology, apply it in creative ways to business problems to produce new and creative solutions. Sometimes this is with technology, sometimes it is team building, but often a combination of many different disciplines are used to create the desired outcome. Each solution requires tapping into creative resources and allowing the solution to evolve. Done well, this process looks easy but is not.
