  • I’m for hire!

    I help companies reduce software costs and risk, while increasing speed to market by figuring out what customers want and then designing an internal process to execute on product vision and business requirements. I problem solve, assess product opportunities, help hone in on core value propositions and I design. In addition to consulting experience, I have started my own companies and learned from building my own technology products. The lessons I’ve learned allow me to bring a very unique perspective to your project. I truly believe great businesses are built on great experiences and I make those experiences happen.
