I have travelled on many occasions to Europe, Asia and all over the USA for business and work with people from around the world including more than 22 countries. I am comfortable in office environments as well as working remotely from home.
Throughout my career I have been lucky enough to have great mentors. I am completely comfortable speaking in front of groups, teams, or virtually on webinars. My oral and written communications skills are excellent. There is always room for improvement and I certainly still have LOTS to learn.
I have experience providing a wide variety of services as a consultant, software developer, manager, and servant leader.
All teams require the role of a leader to be fulfilled or risk chaos. I am that guy. My philosophy is that of the servant leader. I have a record for leading innovative, highly productive, high integrity teams.

I have been working from home offices and travelling for over 8 years. I enjoy the efficiency and flexibility. As a bonus, I get more productive time in not wasted on daily travel.
I enjoy learning and I always adapt in the most effective manner to every work environment. I have experienced all types: formal, informal, crazy chaos, WOW! and sublime.
I had the opportunity to work with great companies and awesome people...
