I am a seasoned information security leader with over 20 years of experience in multiple industries including Financials, E-Commerce, Multimedia, and SaaS. I specialize in Enterprise and Cloud Security and help organizations of all sizes strategically plan, build, and implement processes and solutions that increase their security posture. I have a strong technical background combined with amiable interpersonal skills that give me an edge among others making me effective with all types of people from developers to the C-Suite.

I sincerely believe that when more and more companies improve their security posture, society is better off in the end.

I also believe in maintaining the highest ethical standards, which is why I have chosen not to take part in the resale of security products. This gives me the freedom to make the best recommendations for my clients. My goal is to improve your security posture.
