3 years at Gartner, 18 years industry experience
Location: FL USA | Language(s): English
Roles and Responsibilities
I am a Network Security Analyst. I provide advise and insight to clients in the following areas: Network Firewalls Macrosegmentation Microsegmentation Hybrid Cloud interconnection Design Network Access Control IDS/IPS SSE I also contribute to and write research notes related to Network Security topics.
I have worked at vendors (Cisco TAC 9 years), VARS (Eplus 2 years), large healthcare vendors (Allscripts 2 years), and Large Financials (Truist 2 years). Over my career I have moved from Customer Support Engineer, to Managed Service Engineer, to Principal Engineer, and finally Lead Enterprise Architect. With each move the scope of my responsibility increased and I grew closer to the nexus of technology and business. I went from how does the technology work to how does it enable the business function. I hope to use this experience going forward at Gartner to help Gartner clients make the correct technology decisions in order to create optimal business outcomes.
