With an inclusive and collaborative leadership style, I engage with high-level stakeholders and top corporate executives across industries to build and grow high-performing product teams to achieve and communicate objectives.
Most recently, I served at the U.S. Department of State as the Senior Advisor for Digital Platforms where I implemented cloud computing solutions to empower a 21st century public diplomacy.

In this role, I focused on implementing sustainable cloud computing strategy, leveraging more effective cloud-friendly contracting options, improving software development practices with agile methodologies, and adopting open source approaches to more effectively support President Obama's foreign policy objectives across multiple digital mediums.
