Global delivery of architecture strategies for C-level client engagements with focus on core business competencies with architecture review for proposed technology alternatives is what I do leading clients and project teams from organizational assessment to vendor negotiations, business case development, budget and resource planning through cutover.

My dynamic project architecture implementation approach to lead large-scale projects, cross-functional project teams, providing tactical and technical guidance during realization while coordinating efforts helps me to produce on-time and on-budget solution and architecture delivery.
