Passionate about addressing and solving complex business challenges through targeted analysis, Business Intelligence and technology automation, while collaborating to achieve positive and effective workplace experiences that are focused on improving a company’s total business portfolio objective.

I’m an outdoor enthusiast. You can find me on the slopes as a National Ski Patrol volunteer, in the air kiteboarding, and skimming across the water in multiple disciplines. Adventure sports have taught me risk management, self-reliance, stretching oneself, how to leave my comfort zone and the importance of good communication skills and teamwork to minimize risk. The same traits are vital to running an innovative business, understanding objectives, working as a team and delivering results.
