I recently started my career with Emphasys as a Portals Implementation Consultant, in March 2024 and am so excited to work with the team! I started my professional career as an Adapted Physical Education teacher, before transitioning into the Human Service industry. After spending some time in the Human Services sector, I took a career pivot into the software industry. I have been consulting for about 3 years now and very much enjoy the processes of consulting with clients and taking them through their implementation journey to go-live. I live in the Rochester, NY area with my wife and our 13-year-old pup, Bodie, a Dachshund mix. When I’m not working, you will find me outside, especially if a body of water is nearby. In the Winter, you’ll find me on the local slopes, either cruising down the hill on my snowboard or teaching folks with disabilities learn how to ski and snowboard independently. Summertime activities include boating, camping, golfing, disc golf or kickball, and anything to soak up the rare Western NY sun when it’s out!
