About Me

I am a solutions architect, self-starter and technology enthusiast. I am
relentlessly curious and moved by the constant need to interpret the world and find meaning in seemingly random things.

Over the last 13 years, my enthusiasm and experience have been in the
field of enterprise, cloud and IT system technologies (including the latest innovations and solutions).

In my current role, I work for a local VMware cloud provider and drive the vision, strategy and business for its cloud solutions. I handle the technical and business validation and participate in deep architectural discussions with enterprise customers.

I hold multiple professional certifications in VMware, Microsoft, Oracle Cloud, CompTIA and ITIL that support the work I have done over the years and my ability to create roadmaps and build solutions that fit customers’ desired future state.
