Help your team envision, design, lead and support intelligent, adaptive and embedded digital ecosystem transformations that drive value and growth. At Nishimachi International School, I lead nine major transformations within the school's digital ecosystem. See my portfolio for details.
Develop your digital ecosystem to accelerate production processes. Work with you to select and implement devices/apps/platforms to accomplish production goals.

I have helped dozens of teachers become Google certified educators and run my own certification courses through Google Classroom. I offer professional development in software/hardware systems like Apple OSX and iOS for Macbooks and iPads, Google G Suite on any device, etc..

Creative cost cutting: I designed and built custom iPad storage that allowed Bonn International School's elementary to save over €25,000 euro in capital expenses and minimize device footprint by re-organizing closet configurations and leveraging surplus shelving accessories.
Demystify IT support. I am expert at conducting surveys, interviews and producing documentation of user stories that allow IT departments to see and realize the true needs of their clients. Once the information is collected I bring the team together, share information and help them optimize and adjust their configurations.
Audit your marketing communications program. Within six months of beginning work at the Dow Chemical Company I initiated a Six Sigma IT/communications improvement for Dow’s Public Affairs Department and after that delivered a report outlining IT/communication solutions that were implemented not just in the business I was working for, but some aspects of my work were eventually adopted as IT/Customer Interface best practices company wide.
Business development. I work with schools and businesses to design and produce creative media & drone photography in support of their marketing and development efforts.
