I am focused on the assessment, development, and execution of the security strategy for global customers. I help establish strategic alignment between business objectives and the programs, policies, and risks that arise from regulatory and compliance obligations.
In the past, I have worked as a Chief Technology Officer for an international travel agency driving the technical vision and leading enterprise technology vision across infrastructure, cybersecurity, applications, and travel technology for all business units. The nature of travel is sharing data with third parties and I developed the first-hand experience in risk-prioritization.
I have 20+ years of global consulting experience with expert level understanding and experience in IT strategy & governance, directing large, complex change initiatives.
I am a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), a Project Management Professional (PMP), and Aviatrix Certified Engineer (ACE)
In my spare time, I manage terabytes of travel photography, portrait photography, and snorkeling video. This leads to a conversation about lenses, Adobe Lightroom, and off-site data backups, so be warned. I am also a Virtual Private Network aficionado and hacker.
