About Me

My Experience

I am originally from Long Island, NY with a short period of development  (during the Apollo program) in Texas.  With a Army SROTC scholarship, I went to college in Colorado and graduated having majored in wildlife biology.  I started my professional career in marine design & engineering then (as a Section Manager in Materials Engineering) I was accepted into the management development program at Bath Iron Works and may passion was ignited!  I found that business change & transformation through program and project management  was what got me motivated because I saw early how technology (IT & OT) was going to forever change how business was being done.  As information technology expanded and dominated the course of businesses, I worked in increasing leadership responsibilities in multiple industries:  manufacturing, aerospace & defense, healthcare, insurance, consumer appliances, and government technology and government health services.  For the past seven years I have been the managing principal of  a consulting firm serving clients across the USA

I reside in Maine and have been a road warrior since 1995 and enjoy the opportunity to meet & work with all types of people across a range of industries and  companies.

My Skillset

I help client organizations gain control of their program, project, IT, and PMO costs and schedule for their most strategic programs and projects – mentoring and driving teams in best practices to assure sustainable change management discipline.   

I work well under pressure and can produce high-quality work in short periods of time and have strong interpersonal skills to effectively work with a wide variety of people.

My Goals

I am a co-founder of a consulting firm but due to a recent business change, I am looking for an opportunity to work with a team that runs on clear communication and has a shared passion for improving business-IT operations.

I want to align myself with a company I believe in and where I can create positive change. for them or their clients  I am always looking to learn more and am open to taking on the most challenging projects.
