An architect by trade (University of Maryland)....... A technology leader by profession. I’ve spent the last 25 years helping organizations solve critical challenges with technology. Currently, I manage the Education Vertical for Nextiva, a hosted communication provider (UCaaS/SaaS). I live in Scottsdale, AZ with my wife of 30 years, I have 2 sons at the University of Arizona, and I have 2 adopted cocker spaniel brothers. Although Nextiva is the Official Communications Provider to the Pac-12, my entire family grew up in Ohio, and went to The Ohio State University (24 family members)....so my dad doesn’t understand that there are other conferences outside of the Big10. I’m looking forward to connecting!
