As Managing Director at Shift7 Digital, I work with clients to strategize, innovate and tactically deliver results for their businesses. I bring a unique mix of business and digital strategy, program management and operational execution to the table. As a result of my work, some of the world's leading organizations are now pushing the boundaries of the digital world.

My expertise is centered around B2B and B2C business and digital transformation, user experience design, digital marketing, and complex technology implementations - enabling businesses to exceed their performance targets. In my 20 years in digital consulting, I have run client portfolios, led multi-million dollar account growth initiatives and developed talent within large organizations. My expertise and skills have positively impacted several industries, including financial services, manufacturing, government and not for profit. In addition to professional assignments, I am an adjunct professor for digital transformation and IT operations at George Mason University’s School of Business.

When not solving my clients' challenges, I can be found running, traveling the world or getting the focal point just right for my next photograph.
