I am passionate about technology. My experience, combined with the practical knowledge I have gained over the course of my career —gives me a deep understanding of my field. This includes the challenges, opportunities, and best practices we must consider when working in this industry. My work ethic is strong, and I believe in building strong relationships in order to navigate complex situations and make a positive impact on the firm.

Outside of the office, I can be found walking my dog, Pebbles, in the beautiful hills of Northwest Portland. I also enjoy landscaping and working on an old Porsche that I’m restoring.
