COMPANY FOCUS We’re a business technology consultancy and partner, offering our clients our advocacy and “one throat to choke” (1st Line of Defense).

FAVORITE PART OF MY JOB No. 1 is working with clients, especially longtime ones. No. 2 is continuing to learn how and where to use the new technologies.

LEAST FAVORITE PART When I have to deal with a bad actor, whether that’s a client or a competitor
