One-Line Bio

I work in a professional services firm and am interested in Knowledge Workers, how they work, what tools they use, and what makes them tick.

Biography

I work for McGladrey, a professional services firm committed to being the partner of choice for mid-market firms in need of assurance, tax, and consulting services. My focus there is building a SharePoint practice in the Northeastern U.S.

Previously, I worked for Sentri, a firm that delivers business solutions using Microsoft technologies. My team focused on delivering SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, and Microsoft Cloud solutions to mid-market and enterprise clients throughout the Northeast.

Prior to that, I was a partner at KMA, focused on driving the growth of our business via finding new customers, ensuring that the needs of existing customers are met, and working with our business partners such as infrastructure partners, other complementary consulting firms, and Microsoft.

My background includes work at Coopers & Lybrand as an Associate and Senior Associate (I am a "recovering" CPA), in various finance/accounting roles at Bentley Systems, a leading software company, and in various consulting, sales, and management roles at ePartners, a leading provider of Microsoft Business Solutions. My focus has principally been on entrepreneurial firms, where I most enjoy the pace and the immediacy of the work.

My undergraduate degree is a B.S. in Accounting & Finance from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, PA. I achieved CPA certification in 1994 and PMP (Project Management Professional) certification in 2004.

In my spare time, I play golf and over-30 baseball, coach youth baseball, read voraciously, and also enjoy travel, food, and the occasional co-ed softball game with my wife.

I created this blog as a place to capture thoughts and to aggregate information related to Knowledge Workers for customers, prospects, and business partners. I entitled it "Victus Pro Scientia Opus" (literally "Food for the Knowledge Worker") as a paean to my 16 years of Catholic school.

The thoughts, ideas, and opinions are mine and mine alone, and not intended to represent any employer, past or present.

I hope that you find it informative and occasionally entertaining, and I welcome your feedback!
