    “A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”—J. A. Shedd
  • What attracted you to Slalom?
    Initially it was the local consulting model, but now it is definitely the entrepreneurship attitude that Slalom empowers us with. I am challenged to bring my best every day and have the ability to create and shape the future at Slalom. It’s your future, love it or fix it!
  • What makes a great consultant?
    Not just completing their tasks and doing them well, but always going above and beyond what is expected. Partner with the client, understand their business issues and always be a thought leader alongside them.
  • How did you end up with a career in consulting?
    I came from a family of consultants (brothers and cousins) and always enjoyed experiencing all of the various industries and technologies. I always assumed I’d try out consulting for a few years and find a great job in industry. My perspective changed when I found Slalom and I now believe I’m a lifelong consultant.
  • Hobbies
    I have been brewing beer for close to 5 years now. In fact, I started the Slalom Chicago Brew Crew where we now make close to 100 gallons a year.
