Summary

From an early age, I always loved solving problems. When I was 6, I once stayed up all night putting together a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. It took me the whole night, but I sure did complete the puzzle.

Today, I am still working on puzzles, just instead of jigsaw puzzles, it's business puzzles!

I help companies with Enterprise Architecture and connecting various system components with each other in order to create a harmonious solution that solves business requirements.

Over the course of my career, I have assisted businesses both small and large by implementing efficient systems and processes. I have a knack for finding areas within any organization which I can add value to and provide solutions for.

It's my passion to help companies transform to the modern age by converting their manual, paper based systems into digitalized, efficient, cloud-based systems.
