Greetings and a little bit about myself:

I live in San Diego, California with my wife and three wonderful daughters. I have been working in Information Technology (IT) sector for several years mainly in various IT leadership roles.

The IT environment must work for any organization to be successful, and it takes talented people to make that happen. I focus strongly on effectively utilizing technology to assist organizations and people in moving corporate and individual goals forward. I am accomplished in tactical IT and budget management; strategic IT planning; complex project management; and building high-performance work teams. My teams and I set high standards and expectations of excellence for each other and our external partners. An IT department must support its customers in a friendly and caring manner while keeping the technical operation working at optimal performance. By this approach, we deliver the value that technology promises for our organizations and thereby better enabling our colleagues to achieve their desired goals.

Thank you and please feel free to contact me via LinkedIn, Email, or Twitter.
