I am the Vice President at Truveta, a startup company focused on using big data to solve the toughest problems in healthcare. 

Prior to Truveta, I managed large scale software projects for 22 years at Microsoft and consulted at Facebook on the Oculus product line.  My work at Microsoft included break through innovations such as the HoloLens augmented reality headset and the multi-billion-dollar Windows Server operating system.  I experienced the intense pressure of leading teams through tough technical challenges and grueling schedules, with everyone coming out the other side wanting to do it again. 

I’m a native Texan and live in Houston with my sparkling wife and a demanding cat.
