I have experience in data center operations, network operations, data center design, data center capacity optimization, migrations and relocations, matching colocation providers to businesses, assessment of existing data centers as well as new data centers, data center energy efficiency, enterprise IT architecture, IS security, data center product management.
I have been a part of the data center community almost from the beginning days of Enterprise Information Technology. I’ve observed the birth of many technologies, their life cycle, and eventual demise. The same is true for enterprise architecture practices, design standards, and those best practices later replaced by better practices. I’ve been a part of the bubbles, the bursts and the busts.
The data center is my professional passion. Through my 30 years in this industry I have enjoyed quite a wide variety of roles centered on the data center in over 15 countreis, and the breadth of perspective brought by these roles enables me to deliver long-term value to my clients.
I have led large IT organizations and transformations, 24×7 data center operations, strategic planning for infrastructure, data center engineering, commercial data center services, training and education, data center product development/management and of course many years of professional services for data center topics.
