Chief Technology Officer
As a proud member of the TELUS International family, it has been an exciting road of experiences to get here as CTO and to support such an innovative, diverse and engaged group of people across the globe.
Having previously led global organizations as CIO, CTO, EVP and VP of Technology, I have had the privilege of traveling to over 40 countries, including visiting 47 U.S. states beyond my current home in Orange County, California.
I hold two separate college degrees: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Marketing and an Associate of Applied Science in Computer Science. The combination allows me to hold technical conversations that also translate into actionable business objectives for internal and external clients. As a result, I’ve often been called a “friend of sales,” which is a compliment I truly value.
Most of my early career was spent in software design and development. Now that my coding days have passed, I am experienced and practiced in Board, C-Level, Private Equity and Analyst communications; having authored board level plans and representing large firms to the analyst community. I truly enjoy working with teams of all sizes, having been a C-level leader and mentor for organizations of 90,000+ people, but also founding (and eventually selling) a small web and PC applications startup company.
As a lifelong learner, I also earned my Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification in 2016 and, even more fun, my FAA Private Pilot, PADI Open Water and Certified Boaters certifications that allow me to enjoy southern California to its fullest!
From technology, to boating, to customer experience, please connect or reach out if I can be of service.
