I am a seasoned industry analyst with 10+ years experience in the IT market research industry, I help organizations and solution providers understand how to effectively respond to the rapidly evolving technology needs of the connected workforce, with a focus on mobile and collaboration technologies.

Prior to my recent work as an analyst with San Mateo-based Altimeter Group, I led the research, events and consulting operations as the Senior Vice President of Research and Service Delivery IANS Research, a boutique security research firm. I spent 5 years as a Senior Analyst at Forrester Research covering Enterprise Mobility where I pioneered research on the implications of ubiquitous mobility.

I have experience at IDC, two start-up research firms and in the management consulting space. I speak frequently at major industry events such as the Consumer Electronics Show, Mobile World Congress, and Interop and am frequently quoted in publications such as CNBC, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and have been featured multiple times in radio and television appearances discussing the implications of mobile technology.

I live and work North of Boston. I am a graduate of the Isenberg School of Management at The University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
