I design creative solutions to technical problems for small businesses and nonprofits. For several years, I worked for managed service providers helping large companies achieve their goal of high quality IT services in various service management and technology support roles.
Several years ago, I joined HDI as a way expand my knowledge and network: learn best practices, build professional relationships and even give back to the community. I stepped up where there was a need and have held several roles in the San Francisco Bay Area HDI local chapter. In each one, I learned something interesting and helpful: volunteer leadership; networking; social media; & event marketing. But the professional relationships have meant the most.
When not learning new technologies or practices, I am often found in a kitchen cooking meals for 1-100 people, relaxing by a fire after a hike with friends and family, or reading a book. I enjoy making new professional acquaintances. Reach out via LinkedIn if you want to talk shop: service management, technology, information security, or business.
