Twenty-one years focused on the application of Information Technology in business from diverse perspectives that include development, pre-sales, consulting and marketing. This broad experience allows me to provide value, vision and direction when talking to customers, partners and developers alike and to foster innovation. Passionate about the customer, pragmatic about the product.
Throughout all of this I have been working on ideas and methods for businesses to make better use of information and for individuals to take control of their own information to improve the quality of personal decisions
Currently bringing to life a Semantic Web Technology for eCommerce Applications in the VRM tradition.
