Data Influencer | Founder | Speaker |Author |Sr. Data Architect | Big Data | Content Developer | Unicorn | MindfulTech

I am a true explorer of technology. My curiosity and experience as a Sr. Data Architect for leading cloud technology giants and cutting edge start-ups inspired me to learn more. Although this space is challenging in more ways than one my focus is clear. Technology is a platform I can explore through development, speaking, and writing. As a storyteller, an advocate for wellness and mental health, I use technology for meaningful purposes. I am at my best when I am energized by my work, environment, and the people that truly understand the climb. Senior Content Developer SQL - Microsoft
