I’ve been in the identity space for most of my career, and I’m still passionate about it. Anyhow, as a Managing Partner, I'm supposed to be part of the team that sets the strategic vision for the company, but honestly – Identropy has way too much brainpower for a single person to do that. Instead, I get my hands dirty with the customer development process, lend a helping hand wherever its needed, and I have the privilege to talk identity with some of the brightest minds in this space every day.

I started my professional career building and working with robots. When my plans to start the robot uprising toward world domination fell through, I turned to software consulting. For the past decade, I have spent my time working closely with clients across the globe helping them navigate the dangerous waters of Identity and Access Governance. Prior to becoming an Identropian, I was the VP of Global Services for Courion Corporation where I built and ran a successful global professional services operation.

The thing that excites me most about Identropy is being able to help customers solve their most complex business problems through a mix of strategic vision, best-in-class technologies, and transformational consulting.

I believe my passion for the IT industry actually blossomed during my first career out of college: hazardous waste management. The regulatory compliance needs of that industry quickly challenged my organizational skills and I realized I needed to up the ante to avoid drowning in a sea of paperwork. But working for a small company, there was no concept of an IT department to turn to.

So armed with books on MS Access/VB6 and an understanding of what I hoped to accomplish, I created a number of databases and supporting applications that bridged the gap, although in hindsight those early database designs were not ones I would admit to authoring today. Combining that interest and additional formal training, my second career was launched and opened the doorway to assisting companies navigate the complexities of implementing IAM solutions. During my free time I enjoy skiing, tennis and vacations with the family.

I started out in the Finance area and was the New England Divisional Controller of Corporate Express Office Supplies where I was also the Divisional HR Director. After deeply being involved in 8 acquisitions at Corporate Express in under a year I decided to change my career path.

I joined Cambridge Technology Partners* which was acquired Novell* and left to join Courion*

I have been in the IAM space for about 15 years working as Business Analyst, Project Manager, Program Manager, Solution Delivery Manager, Director of Services and now Client Partner.

I am based out of my home in Danvers MA and will be practice cross functional with the goal of working with the Identropy teams and Clients to ensure successful IAM implementations

That is the reality of what I have and am doing – my dream was to be an international spy. I took an abundance of language classes in both undergrad, post graduate college and to date am not fluent in any language with maybe the exception of English. I am still working on the spy skills.

I started programming in the 80’s, when my mother brought home a TI-84 (Texas Instrument) and told me that if I wanted to play one of “those games”, I had to type it in myself first and learn how it worked. I cursed her then, but thank her daily now! I have worn a number of IT hats over the years, going back and forth from programmer to analyst, working with a number of systems and platforms, originally in the Casino Gaming world, until I moved to the Financial/Banking world and began working with the SailPoint product in 2010 and I haven’t looked back since. I love the product, and the IAM world, with all it’s challenges, nuances and gray areas.

Outside of work, I am an avid kayaker and camper/survivalist, who loves nightlife and the city lights. Each weekend is a toss-up between the backwoods with no cell signal, renovating a house, or an adventure in any number of cities. I live by the “Work hard, play hard” motto, and I pride myself on my attention to detail and drive to get the job done right, so I can hang my hat up and go “play” outside knowing that my work is done and stands for itself. I am ecstatic to have found a like-minded group of people with Identropy, and look forward to the challenges, laughs, and successes in store for us.

Since joining Identropy, I’ve enjoyed helping the company grow through its Professional Services, its Managed Services, and all of the the general bootstrapping that a young company required. I’m very passionate about technology, and one of the best things about startups is having the flexibility (sometimes out of necessity) to find innovative ways to apply technology to solve problems. I’m also very passionate about food, and thankfully, equally love to cook. If you ever start a conversation with me about food or tech, you’ll have me talking to you all night.

This being my first full-time gig out of college, I’m a noob in the yam industry. But during this brief time at Identropy, I’ve learned much and enjoyed cultivating the best yams for our clients. When I’m not knee-bent in dirt harvesting those yams, I follow all major sports, follow tech trends and stay engaged in the community. I’m obsessed with monospace fonts, indentations and camelCase.

Like many others, I’ve found a home here at Identropy. The people shape the culture of the company, and our culture is one of shared passion for Identity Management and caring about the people around you. I like to think I fit into that way of thinking. The future is bright here and I’m excited to be a part of it!

SailPoint IAM Architect

In my career I have performed several roles in the IAM space, including working as an instructor, implementation engineer, architect, and even doing some custom software development. I bring a strong focus on generating a solution that will not only meet a customer’s needs, but will bring to light the value of having a true IAM program in place to streamline business process.

In my spare time, I am a guitarist playing a variety of music from punk to blues, an avid baseball fanatic (go Halos), a Whovian, and a general geek. My greatest enjoyment is bringing my passion for these things to my wonderful family.

This mission isn’t about me. Never has, never will. Instead, it’s all about the Identropy team and how we collaborate and combine our knowledge and vision to revolutionize the Identity and Access Management industry. This mission is also about our clients (whom we call our partners). Each and every one of our partners invests and believes in the Identropy team and we owe it to them to understand what their pain points and requirements are, so that we can collectively determine the best solution and deliver it in a timely, cost effective, and innovative fashion. So even though I technically represent Identropy in a sales oriented capacity, my job role and responsibility is to do whatever is needed to achieve the mission of Identropy.

I was almost 30 years old by the time I figured out what I wanted to be when I grow up. Ever since I got my TRS 80 Color Computer as a child, I knew I wanted to work with computers. In school I was led to believe that I could either be an engineer or a consultant. The former was too technical; the latter not technical enough. Finally I learned about Professional Services and found it to be the perfect balance of consulting and technology.

Working as a system administrator for a town government with a shoestring budget taught me the importance of efficient, repeatable business processes, and automation. Graduate school formalized those lessons. I see my career as the logical next step of applying what I learned to help businesses improve and automate their processes.

VP of Business Development

Prior to joining Identropy I dedicated ten plus years of my professional life to making customers successful with Identity and Access Management solutions from CA Technologies and Quest / Dell Software. In those roles, my ability to assist customers was limited by the solutions I represented. As Identropy’s Director of Business Development I have the opportunity to provide broader and deeper value to our clients. Our advisory and managed services practices and our vendor agnostic stance allow us to deliver value that goes beyond success with a particular product. Helping customers build their IAM program, select a vendor that is best suited for their needs and then helping them run their program is tremendously rewarding.

After making the switch into Identity and Strong Authentication almost 15 years ago I have discovered two passions: Professional Services and Customer Success! I am very fortunate to work at a company like Identropy which embraces Core Values as away of doing business. When I am not working I can be found raiding the refrigerator, mountain biking on amazing single track, running, or enjoying the California sunshine.

After looking around the IAM market a bit for a new place to call home, I got introduced to Identropy by a friend. He had nothing but good things to say about the company, and right from the get go I was able to see why he liked working there so much. I’m glad to have become a member of the community here and I’m looking forward to my future working with Identropy.

I am new to Identropy and new to the IAM field. In my short time here I can already tell that I am going to love working with and learning from this awesome group of people. When I’m not working, I am either playing sports, watching sports, or binging on Netflix. I love being outdoors and if I could live in a tent, I would.
