Project Manager & Information Security Strategist

I am a technology Project Manager and Information Security Strategist with entrepreneurial experience in the technology services space. A native of Wheeling, West Virginia, I am now based in San Francisco.

I use this personal site website to share my musings on technology, economics, and geopolitics as well as to share what I'm reading.


Presently, I'm at Alto Financial where we're building the financial institution of the future. A more comprehensive list of past ventures or projects is available here.

Education & Certifications

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a BSBA in Management Information Systems before taking graduate classes at Stanford University.

I currently hold a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute.


In addition to technology, economics, and geopolitics as the site's tagline suggests, my interests include law, public policy, computer programming, data modeling, and management sciences.

My reading list consists of a variety of journals, newspapers, magazines, academic publications, and books but my favorite periodicals are The Economist, Foreign Affairs, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and MIT Sloan Management Review.
