Expertise And Specialization

As a global technologist my career has spanned the full lifecycle of transformation engagements that have afforded me the opportunity and privilege to have collaborated with some amazing people representing top Fortune 100 companies.

This experience has shaped and sharpened my perspective toward the future of what is possible.

In 2015, I decided to broaden my scope beyond Information Technology and embark on a journey to obtain an Executive Master’s Degree in International Affairs and Global Business from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. This experience broadened my viewpoint and informed my perspective on global technology adoption and disruption.

Today, as a consultant leader at Microsoft, I help clients fully utilize and adopt cloud technology to realize their transformational journey.

Web 3.0/Blockchain/DLT Technologies

I am extremely excited and optimistic about the future of the Web 3.0 space. The convergence of Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology, AI, IoT and VR/AR technology represents a significant shift in how we work, live, and evolve. Additionally, this technology will change how businesses are envisioned and monetized.

As this space accelerates, businesses will be created that realize the promise of decentralized computing. Technology Immersion and digital twin technology will become normalized as an extension or augmentation of our existing world.

This paradigm shift presents opportunities for increased ownership, entrepreneurship, data stewardship and financial inclusion; ultimately this will uplift humanity and increase economic freedoms.
