I've had the opportunity to work in various industries while in college and after graduation. As a corporate advisor at DeVry, Inc I was able travel around the Midwest advising campuses, students, and professors on enrollment, classes, and technologies that the school had to offer.

After graduating with my MBA, I had the opportunity to work as a technology consultant. There I was involved in the engineering and business aspects of the company. I met with C-level personnel and discussed ROI, detailed aspects of a given piece of technology, and other general business related items. I had the chance to manage a team of engineers, and move into a more business development role where I used my communication skills and my talents as an engineer to work directly with IT managers and directors. I truly enjoyed the experience I was able to gather there. At least once a week I was learning and playing with a new technology.


After working with great clients, I felt that I wanted to focus my experience on helping one organization grow. I came to World Wide Fittings with that goal and helped them manage their entire technology infrastructure, IT budgeting and reporting, and user education. At WWF I was able to be a self-driven person who set goals based on the company's needs. I was able to forecast projects, estimate returns on those projects, and really push the people that worked with me to excel. Within 3 years, I was able to cut costs by over 70%. I developed a structured IT department with reporting, budgeting, and growth in mind. After accomplishing the goals I had set out at World Wide Fittings, I felt it was time to re-immerse myself back into the technology field. I found, hired and trained my direct replacement thus properly transitioning the environment.

After joining MTM Technologies as a Cloud and Virtualization Architect - I now have the opportunity to directly influence the direction of our organization as their Vice President of Strategy and Innovation.

Outside of that - I enjoy writing, blogging and speaking on everything that is IT, Cloud, and Technology.
