As an experienced strategic advisor, advocate, and practitioner with a special focus on cybersecurity and cloud computing, I love to help CISOs, CTOs, CIOs and other executives identify their technology challenges and create solutions. I am always ready to sit down with clients to listen to their problems and help them succeed. I am relationship driven and quickly establish trusted relationships with people at all levels, from C-suite to staff, and novices to experts. Proactively partner with sales to grow the bottom line by facilitating customer success.
I take great joy in speaking at conferences and events, including GrrCon, The Long Con, Purdue’s Dawn or Doom Artificial Intelligence Convention, and others. I enjoy giving passionate, pragmatic, info-packed presentations on security, cloud, and new technologies and techniques while I inspire and empower companies, clients and users.
