About Me

I am a Digital Transformation expert. I am an Analytics-driven, Machine Learning creator. I am an industry disruptor advancing Startups, Acquisitions, and Growth companies with Technology and Marketing innovations. A Strategic visionary, driver of data & actionable KPIs. A team-centric, results-oriented, leader, mentor & coach. I am a performance-driven visionary, offering 25 years’ comprehensive achievements across Technology, Marketing, SaaS, and Digital Transformation industries and environments.

A capable mentor and manager with a strong Agile skillset. I am a Business Process Improvement expert with strong Communications and Leadership skills. I have a track record in multiple organizations, attracting, recruiting, and mentoring large teams and direct reports. My technology skills transcend through infrastructure, telecommunications, and software design. I help create, improve, or implement the vision for companies who struggle with implementing vision with completeness and speed. A value alignment specialist that has repeatedly resulted in multi-million-dollar growth, maximizing profitability, and building or restoring market share in highly complex and competitive business climates

A transformational leader with a continuous improvement mentality and the ability to engage employees at all levels by elevating and training product knowledge, process excellence, and instituting cultures of excellence. I never stop asking “Why” as that why leads to Innovation.

My motto – If you aren’t happy with status quo then shake up the industry!

I have learned that businesses should never stop focusing on revenue. They should never stop aligning their value to their customer. They should never stop with the Digital Transformation mindset. They should never stop innovating!

I have developed a framework that works with Lean Six Sigma to make it easier to understand at all levels and to ensure that a business is progressing forward. The framework is a combination of a health-check and a steppingstone to a goal of employee accountability, engagement, and culture that will lead the company towards innovation, value, and revenue.
