New Opportunities


After two and a half years in Sales Engineering at Jive Software, I’m exploring what’s next for me. I’ve enjoyed my time as both a Subject Matter Expert on SharePoint and as a Field Sales Engineer. And now, it’s time to move one.

At Jive, I’ve had the opportunity to work with leaders across the company. I consulted and co-produced work with IT, Engineering, Product Management and Product Marketing. As I visited and collaborated with different groups, I was also learning how a market-leading, publicly-traded software company works from the inside out. As a Sales Engineer, I also learned and practiced valuable Enterprise Software Sales skills with some of the best in the industry, preparing and delivering executive presentations, product demonstrations and visions of the future. I’ve always said that if the future of the digital workplace doesn’t include Jive, it includes something that looks an awful lot like it! 🙂

What’s next? I’m not 100% positive yet, but it probably looks a lot like what I’ve done before. For the past 20 years, I’ve focused on helping others take advantage of web and mobile communication and collaboration tools. Lately, my focus has been on packaged web collaboration software. Many of the companies I’m talking to today produce commercial, off-the-shelf software.

If you think I can help you, please let me know. I’d be happy to take advantage of my deep and broad technical knowledge and experience with web collaboration software and enterprise social networks.  Also, I’m open to learning something new.

I’ve published my availability at If you’d like to set up a time to meet over the next couple of weeks while I’m considering options, feel free.


In the past couple weeks, I’ve already had some great discussions with some awesome people doing incredible things in the web software industry. I’m looking forward to connecting with you.
