As a well-established IT leader with a passion for architecture, design, coding, refactoring, and development, I possess 20+ years’ success spearheading large teams to deliver the end-to-end development of 30+ innovative software solutions on time and under budget on a US and international level.

Throughout my career, I have made it my priority to utilize current technologies and new techniques to develop elegant, creative technical solutions across all project phases. Comfortable in collaborative and independently-driven roles, I am a forward-thinking leader with refined analytical and critical thinking skills, and I can adapt and revise my strategies to meet evolving priorities, shifting needs, and emergent issues. As a dynamic leader with experience as Technical Lead and Senior Manager, as well as on the Board of Directors, I have led numerous teams to create a new employees experience with Workday, roadmap for people systems (JDA WFMR, Kronos, Infor, Workday, and monitoring with Splunk), and architecture for 20+ projects at Loblaw. Furthermore, I have spearheaded the architecture and development of integrations between MS Dynamics AX, SAP, and other systems at Direct Energy and designed Paid Duty System, the ESB, and the SOA Framework at Toronto Police Services.

As an engaging communicator, I am able to forge and strengthen key professional relationships with stakeholders, clients, and managers and possess a history of success as a published author and referee for the IEEE Software magazine. Furthermore, I have advanced TOGAF practice, SLA, and change management experience, as well as demonstrated ability to swiftly resolve complex technical issues and streamline processes to enhance overall performance.
