Technical Specialities

As you review my credentials, please note that I have been developing products and services in the energy sector for the past 12 of my 30 professional years. With new intelligent devices and renewable energy sources being deployed, there is a growing need to capture and leverage the newly available data and controls to optimize operations. The software will become the differentiator as the hardware becomes commoditized. I have an excellent track record in Grid Modernization, Energy Storage applications and controls, smart grid architecture, Utility Data Analytics/Business Intelligence, Demand Response, (WEB) Consumer Engagement, Meter Data management Systems (MDMS) as well as NERC CIP, FERC, and NIST security and compliance. I have extensive successful product and project development experience leading globally distributed teams of all sizes in multiple verticals implementing a range of technologies and methodologies. As a result, I am able to quickly assess a team's overall culture and objectives and derive a plan of action while adapting to the company's natural flow. My niche is the ability to work with business personnel to create a technical strategy and work with the technical team to bring it to fruition. Thank you.
