I’ve visited Japan over 50 times, experiencing traditions that many Japanese colleagues have said they’ve never experienced. One tradition is “Ukai,” where cormorant birds catch fish by swallowing them whole. They’re saved in their throat pouches and served in a traditional dining ceremony later.

I’m responsible for management consulting in IT and digital transformation services for the smart industry. I specialize in PLM and digital thread; cloud services and support; and data analytics. My diverse skill set — from my background as an engineer and business leader — has provided me extensive industry experience in serving the automotive and transportation; construction; chemicals and plastics; and the public sector verticals.

Clients appreciate that I’m able to understand their underlying issues and communicate them to our teams to help support them and meet their goals. My colleagues appreciate that I’m able to support their needs and can deliver overall goals in a timely manner. I was drawn to helping others deliver solutions utilizing new technology that can meet the demands of the fast-changing marketplace.

I’ve spoken at different industry events about digital transformation, as well as composite and light weighting design for automotive components. I’ve been interviewed by different publications specific to digital transformation, light weighting, and general automotive industry topics. I received the 2021 North American Deal of the Year award during my tenure at Capgemini. Some of my greatest accomplishments include a patent that has been launched in production vehicles, along with sales leadership of different new product introductions that have transformed their respective segments in their industry.

I earned a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Toledo; an M.B.A. from Eastern Michigan University; and a post-graduate degree in business administration from the University of Notre Dame.

Outside the office, I love sporting events, especially college football and soccer. I enjoy traveling with my family; most recently, we went on an Alaskan cruise and a bucket list trip to England to watch a premier league soccer match. I love spending time with my family, friends, and pets and doing home remodeling projects.
