I’ll bring technical vision, leadership, and the right combination of innovation and industry experience to make it a reality. I bring my experience as a software developer & architect combined with industry experience to solve business problems. My job is to Lead delivery of projects that bring together Strategists, Designers, Developers, and Architects to define and build experiences which deliver on your priorities and delight customers. I help bring the full power of KPMG together with my background in building great experiences combining UX design, modern software delivery, the power of the cloud and AI, and how to use a human centered design philosophy which puts people at the center of all business problems. I will navigate between technology and business needs to ensure the best solution is designed and built. One which not just meets expectations and delights customers and employees, but transforms organizations as they evolve from having a digital strategy to doing business in a digital world.

Engagement experience

  • I brought greater efficiency and utility to the NBA’s game schedule. Players were suffering from gruelling itineraries and owing to conflicting times, not all fixtures could be aired on TV. Leading a team of designers and developers, we co-developed a pioneering computer-optimized solution alongside other exceptional KPMG talent. The system ran in the cloud and analyzed over trillions of possible scenarios. It meant NBA staff could evaluate options faster and make more informed scheduling decisions. We did this all in 9 months and continue to build on the application’s success and scheduling every game the NBA plays.
  • I brought several of Microsoft Studios AAA title video games to a brand new audience through the release of new community portals, beta programs, and stats experience. I lead teams of designers and developers to implement CMS driven web and mobile experiences utilizing HTML5, JavaScript, iOS, Android, XBOX, Cordova, Responsive Design, and built and deployed to Microsoft azure. I was responsible for building elegantly designed, technically sound, on budget, solutions on a non-moving schedules. The “gears of war” site was released live on spike TV allowing users to complete beta sign ups. The system registered 786,415 new users from 66 different countries in only 8 days. These systems are core experience and direct customer touch points for the top Microsoft video game franchisees. Halo alone is estimated to have generated over $5 billion in sales.
