menu Summary

I began my professional life in an Elementary School classroom now more than 25 years ago. During my time as a teacher I learned four critical lessons. As a teacher you incubate both the ideas, concepts and dreams of your students. You build an environment where you engage with your consumer (customer engagement) and design a solution that will in the end meet their needs. The Architect of where students go.

1. Learning is tied to the interest people have in what you are saying.

2. If everyone is asked to compete regardless of skill or gender than by default the playing field
is equal for all. Skill wins but if you never try you can never find out if you have the skill.

3. Teams always win over individual excellence. When you combine the great people into a great team you create dynasties!

4. Everyone has something to say, everyone has something to contribute.

Since leaving the classroom I have been a computer trainer, help-desk professional, IT owner of electronic communication and a consultant. I have traveled the world. I have worked with CIO’s in many different countries and many different companies. I am a thought leader who shares concepts on the cutting edge of technology. I have been involved with product groups and readiness at a world wide level. I led a team of architects that built architectural guidance for customers, partners and internal professionals. I have led engineering teams for customers, as part of a product group and as a regional and world wide consultant.


I have been a part of, built and managed high preforming teams. From a classroom where you need to quickly build an effective team to move forward, to delivering solutions across large scales
To end with something I have adapted from John Boyd, if you orient the view of the observation to team first, you will get better team decisions later. As a professional I embrace the overall concepts of solution sales in selling consulting engagements.
