One-Line Bio

I am Principal Consultant at Converging Network LLC, a company founded in 2007 helping clients expand and grow their businesses through product strategy, social media, product management, development, and collaboration.


Throughout my career I've been very privileged to be a part of creating several early stage businesses, software products and services. At my core is a passion for growing and expanding businesses, creating innovative products, and a joy for helping teams and individuals succeed. I also enjoy evangelizing this work with customers, industry media, analysts, and through blogging.

I've enjoyed applying my passion for creating businesses and products at companies like Converging Network, StillSecure, Jato Communications, BoldTech Systems, US West Advanced Technologies, and EDS. I've served in roles including CTO, CIO, VP Engineering, VP Customer Experience, General Manager and in various architecture, software development and network engineering positions.

A focus area of Converging Network LLC is enabling companies and individuals within the world of social media. I discovered quite accidentally the value of social media when I first started blogging and saw the impact it had on the visibility of myself and my company with analysts, press and customers. Today I work with my clients to effectively jumpstart them with social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and blogging.

Converging Network LLC has raised the awareness of a DNSSEC security product company via social media resulting in multiple very large deals, facilitated the develop of the social media strategy for a major university, assisted a client in bringing to market a Microsoft web services based process integration platform leveraging Microsoft and Amazon EC2, expanded the SharePoint consulting practice of a Microsoft Gold Partner, created product strategies for SaaS ISVs, and built successful relationships for clients with Microsoft and OpSource.
