I help clients plan, sell, and manage short and long term projects. (More here.)


Special interests include data governance, collaborative project management, technology adoption, and digital strategy. I also support grant applications, fundraising, and websites for nonprofits.


My experience combines analytical skills with extensive project management experience and involvement with collaborative technologies, social media, corporate IT management, and strategic planning.


I have extensive writing and content development experience related to proposals (business and technical), technology, management, marketing, and media. In addition to being an active blogger and user of social media and social networking tools I'm also a past private school Board of Trustees member, consulting company owner, and podcaster.
