Fun Facts about me: Married 29 years, with four

Career: Since my IT career started in 1997, it’s always been about the data; moving data from one system to another in some form or fashion. I’ve been blessed to have been mentored by some of the best in the business, one of those being an original OneStream startup team member, and now Raj. My first 10 years were spent developing custom applications, building databases and coding. The next 12 years were Hyperion-focused (specializing in FDM and infrastructure), and also when Raj and I first met. The remainder of my career is all about OneStream. I’m convinced SKYROQ is the best place I could be to gain expertise and have the ability (and support) to build cutting-edge systems for clients that go far over and above out-of-the-box functionality.
