Welcome

Thank you for visiting.

Professionally, this site is a companion to my LinkedIn profile, and provides a forum for information management tools and ideas (Blog). In that arena I am a Senior Business Analyst with a deep understanding of the management and structuring of information. As an independent consultant and contractor, I am always interested in hearing about potential opportunities.

Outside of work, I have recently returned to photography.  In that arena I am a student of light and composition (Photo Blog, Gallery).
