I’m a consultant who lives to bring resources and needs together seamlessly for nonprofits and philanthropies, mostly through strategic use of information and communication technologies.

I focus first of all on fulfilling your organization’s mission. Building collaborative relationships is my second priority.  The latest technology gadgets rank very low on my list of concerns.

I always bear in mind that the technologies you use should be supporting your mission, rather than driving you crazy.
