VIRTUAL CTO
FUTURIST SPEAKER

I live and breath technology on a daily basis.  And have done so for over 20 years. My goal is to make sure that technology helps you succeed.  I do this in two ways:

 1. As an on-demand CTO  … By making sure you have the right team, and then implementing the processes I have built-up over 20 years that ensure technology projects are successful.  

2. As a Speaker & Coach… I equip your team to adapt and thrive as technology transforms your industry, and our world.
