Principal Consultant

  • Experience
    I have been busy doing large-scale Program Management with several of Slalom San Francisco’s biggest accounts. Prior to Slalom, I was a Senior Manager at Ernst & Young in their Financial Services advisory practice.
  • What’s your favorite part of your job?
    Working with sharp, hard-working consultants on our client’s toughest problems. Things are always interesting and we have fun.
  • How did you end up with a career in consulting?
    I was doing project delivery work in industry and I would get hired, implement a project, and then find myself looking for new interesting work. Consulting was a natural fit.
  • What was your first job?
    United States Marine from 1990 to 1994. I served as a Field Artillery Surveyor and Marine Combat Instructor of Water Survival.
  • How has your military service/background prepared you for a career at Slalom?
    During my consulting career, many people have asked me how I can remain so calm in stressful work situations. My experience in the Marine Corps taught me how to stay cool, professional, and maintain my sense of humor in any situation.
