I am a Senior Director of Global Solutions at Aruba. It is my responsibility to understand how our products integrate, stay up to date with the latest industry trends, analyze competitors' capabilities, and lead my highly technical team. Some of the deliverables of my team include delivering Proof of Concepts to the largest organizations in the world, building Reference Designs that help customers adopt Aruba solutions, and creating/delivering technical content that helps our customers understand our products and solutions.
My previous work experience has consisted of a variety of roles. Prior to Aruba, I worked at Cisco in the Solutions TME Manager role. Previously, I worked at Avaya in a Technical Sales Leadership role. Before that, I worked at Cisco as a Software Engineer, a Technical Marketing Engineer, and a Global Systems Engineer. In these roles I got to work with exciting accounts like Goldman Sachs, Nationwide, Exxon, and Chevron.
I truly enjoy the challenge of the quickly changing landscape of networking. I am a person that needs to be hands on with the products I am working with and refuses to let the old get in the way of the new.
I have a BA in Computer Engineering from Purdue University and I am always taking at least one course from some online university.
