Hi there, I’m Christian. I’ve been hooked on technology since I took my first programming class when I was 10 years old.

I’ve worked with many companies – both big and small – and I have been lucky enough to do a lot of cool stuff. Here are some of the things of which I’m particularly proud:

  • I’ve led some amazing teams of managers and engineers who have accomplished things that were downright awesome.
  • I head up an Identity and Access Management practice and I love to wax philosophical on the subject.
  • I was the solution architect for a massive custom ERP, designing solutions for electronic signatures, interactive customer devices, enterprise Identity and Access Management, and much more.
  • I architected and led a team to build an Enterprise Portfolio and Project Management suite for Mylan (which also gave me the chance to ride on super fast Jet Ski!)
  • I built the strategy for a massive ERP data conversion for a multi-billion dollar manufacturing company.
  • I helped move many companies from their stale waterfall-based software development lifecycles into strong agile processes (by the way, I love process design).

Some fun facts about me:

  • I’m vibrantly passionate about solid solution strategy, architecture, delivery, and the Oxford comma.
  • I am currently the VP of Enterprise Services at Workstate, a full-service consulting firm.
  • I live in Los Angeles, CA but I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA
  • I prefer tabs over spaces.
  • I taught MIS at a Big 12 University
  • I wrote an eBook called Identity and Access Management: A Primer on Technology and Concepts.
  • I’ve sang in a death metal band. I totally recommend it.

I’d love to connect with you on LinkedIn, but make sure you send me a note first.
