I currently serve as a CIO for Dynamic Campus, leading information technology teams and strategic projects for Higher Education institutions nationally. In this role, I’ve led client institutions through rapid transformation of their IT teams and organizational change. I work closely with executive management and cross-functional stakeholders to establish a vision and leadership model that ensures alignment of IT objectives with the organization’s strategic plan.
Prior to my career in higher education, I spent five years as a Solutions Engineer specializing in commercial audio, video, and broadcast integration.
I received my MBA from the University of Tampa and bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami in Computer Science and Music Engineering Technology. Recent certifications include ITIL v4 and Professional Scrum Master – PSM.
What do you love about the Tampa Bay area?
Tampa Bay is truly one of our country’s best places to live. Besides our outstanding weather, we are a region experiencing rapid residential and economic growth. With every passing year our cities are even more exciting to be a part of! We’re safe. Our sports teams are amazing. And while our communities are very tight, they warmly welcome everyone to be a part.
Oh… and we shut down Tampa annually to have a massive pirate parade next to our bay.
What are some of your favorite things to do around town when you aren’t working?
- Attending event’s in Curtis Hixon park like the Bourbon and BBQ fest, Gasparilla Music and Art festivals
- Evening walks on Bayshore boulevard
- Drinks with friends at Tampa Armature
- Beach Dr in St Pete and the rooftop Canopy at sunset.
- The Lightning during playoffs!
How do you give your time back in the community?
Currently, I’ve joined the Emerging Technology Leaders of Tampa Bay board because I’m passionate about helping to promote our local tech community and talented young professionals.
Tell us about the tech project that you are most proud of.
In December, I wrapped up a 3-month engagement to onboard our newest IT team from Greenville University. The 10 members team supports about a thousand students and more than one-hundred fifty employees. During this time, we started implementing ITIL practices, industry standards, strategic and tactical planning, and made major progress on several key projects and accumulated technical debt.
