I despise “Ice Breakers”, especially those that ask you to tell “Two Truths and a Lie” or “What is something interesting about yourself.”  But, since those are so popular, I thought I would share some fun facts about myself.

  • I have hiked up 3 14,000ft mountains in Colorado.  I lived in Colorado Springs during the summer of 2000.  While I was there, I hiked up Mount Antero, Mount Yale, and Pikes Peak.  (Mount Yale was my favorite of the three.)
  • I ran at least a mile a day every day in 2014.  (I actually ran for 370 consecutive days before getting sidelined by the flu in early 2015.)
  • I can play two instruments, the piano and the trumpet.
  • Despite not being a football fan (or sports in general), I’ve met many members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The most notable include Willie Lanier, Gale Sayers, Anthony Muñoz, and Lynn Swann.
  • If I could have any superpower, I would have the ability to manipulate space and time.  I think it would be interesting to be able to go anywhere and anywhen to learn how the world worked at that moment.  Plus, it would be nice to speed up and slow down time at will.  My superhero name would be “Metronome.”
  • I’m an avid photographer and I enjoy taking shots of the landscapes at places I visit.  (Although most of my photographs are of my two children.)
  • In 2015, I had a chance to fly in a hot air balloon as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Balloon Classic.

Since 2002, I have worked on projects to address a wide range of business and IT objectives for my clients across many different industries.  Although I oversee projects across many areas of IT, I primarily partner with Clients to address their needs in three areas:

IT Strategy & Governance
I assess my client’s ability to sustain and extend their organization’s strategies and partner with them to design and implement actionable roadmaps to meet those objectives. Additionally, I spend a lot of time assisting companies to identify, prioritize, and remediate risks associated with the use of information technology. This includes relating specific technical risks to their impact on business functions and objectives.
IT Risk

Whether partnering with Internal Audit departments to conduct an audit or IT departments that must comply with regulatory requirements, I help my clients assess how well their IT team performs their processes. I regularly audit:

  • IT Processes Controls
  • SDLC & Change Management
  • Project/Portfolio Management
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404
IT Process Improvement
I advise my clients on how to design, implement, and improve practical IT processes that improves efficiency, effectiveness, and risk mitigation. I’ve helped to redesign how companies manage:

  • User Access
  • Demand & Service Management
  • Application Development & Implementation
  • Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery


I’ve been a member of the Protiviti team in Pittsburgh since 2002 and am a member of our IT Audit and Consulting management team for the Pittsburgh and Cleveland Markets.  In 2016, Protiviti was ranked 57 on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list.

I try to find an inspirational quote to contemplate over the course of my week.  Sometimes their relevant to the work I’m doing that week or where I might be working.  Other times, their just simply a quote that inspires me.  Hopefully you can find some inspiration in these quotes as well.

“First comes the day, then comes the night. After the darkness shines through the light. The difference, they say, is only made right By the resolving of gray through refined Jedi sight.” – Journal of the Whills, 7:477 It’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi release week.  I’m certainly excited and there is a lot of […]
