I am a passionate leader with over 15 years of experience in technical, sales, charitable organization, and senior leadership roles. As the Sr. Director and Global Practice Lead, DevOps and Cloud, my focus is on representing the oCTO in international markets, expanding the DataOps ecosystem, evaluating technology partnerships, and of course researching and prototyping new technology. The majority of my time is spent working with other thought leaders in the Global F100 to eliminate key business constraints through people, process, and technology.
My background is in DataOps, DevOps, TDM, Cloud, and Security for the US government and global financial powers. I routinely speak at events about these topics with other industry visionaries and publish blog posts and articles on these subjects frequently. I was recently commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel in recognition of my commitments to public service and charitable works.
