About Me

I’ve been building IT teams, technology, and processes at early stage companies for 15 years. I found that most invest a massive amount of resources into operational functions.

Yet, almost all companies encounter the same IT challenges. The solutions are out there, no need start from scratch to solve them! I created The IT Plan as a standardized, repeatable playbook to develop IT programs from scratch.

My philosophy is that technology is more cultural than it is technical. When you see IT through this lens, better solutions appear.
