I am the Chief Technologist and Director of Technology Enablement for the Data & Analytics Delivery Services group at PwC. I help PwC partners and staff use data, analytics, and visualization techniques to gain new insights and deliver innovative solutions to our clients. My technical interests include web app development, robotics, sensor networks, Internet of Things, human-computer interaction, data visualization, and visual analytics.

Previously I was a member of the Computational Sciences and Engineering Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. I worked with ORNL between 2000-2015 designing and implementing multiple computer systems and applications for the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and other Federal Agencies. I led an ORNL STEM education effort, with a goal of using the lab's research to inspire the next generation of scientists and researchers.

Outside PwC, I coordinate multimedia for Northstar Church and assist in the student ministry. I have served as an instructor for ITT Technical Institute and coach of a local FIRST LEGO League robot competition team for middle school aged children. I contribute to Open Source software, including the awesome Johnny-Five framework for programming robotics and Arduinos using JavaScript. (I also collect toy robots.) More recently, I've learned to build and fly quadcopters and enjoy FPV drone racing and freestyle acrobatic flying. Through ongoing STE(A)M efforts, my goal is to make robotics, electronics, and programming accessible to all ages. I hold a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics, and a M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Tennessee. I am a co-author of the book "Make: JavaScript Robotics"‚Äč
