Creating the vision, strategy and mission for high-performing IT operations is what my experience demonstrates that I do best as a technology executive. I'm also known for building and motivating strong teams who outperform expectations and deliver world-class services. With more than a decade's worth of experience in senior-level IT leadership roles, I specialize in the public sector, particularly higher education and state government.
Currently, I serve in dual C-level positions for the State of Oklahoma. As Chief Operations and Accountability Officer, I oversee the technology backbone for 100+ executive branch agencies and have led consolidation efforts to save $370M+ in IT expenses. To date, I've also piloted 1,200+ complex, agency-specific technology initiatives to improve overall costs and support the state's priorities. Simultaneously, as State CIO for Education, I steer all strategies to optimize technology for statewide school districts at the elementary, secondary and higher education levels.
In addition to thriving in state government, I have excelled as an IT leader for the University of Oklahoma. Notably, I played a central role in establishing OU's highly popular technology retail store which ranked as the #1 institutionally managed Apple reseller in the Southeast. I also provided critical leadership for the development of one of the first iPhone apps for higher education (OU2GO), garnering 1,200+ downloads in the first month of launch.
My leadership style is straightforward: eyes on, hands off. Picking, training and trusting the right team members is crucial to completing challenging initiatives and tackling day-to-day tasks to ensure a reliable IT infrastructure. This is where I excel.
