As the Global Business Officer, I and my team make sure the trains run on time and projects stay on budget. We create processes that help the organization grow, manage the ideation process, and identify sustainment and fundraising activities. What interested me in coming to GCA was the chance to work on cyber projects in a non-profit environment. GCA’s mission of eradicating cyber risk really appeals to me. I started my career in the Army, did some time on Capitol Hill, worked for Oracle and Booz Allen
Hamilton, and led national healthcare projects under the Obama Administration.
What is your favorite quote?
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt
What is the last book you read?

Where is your favorite place in the world?
I live in Austin, Texas and I love it! It’s an interesting mix of cultures. Plus you can’t beat the great weather, phenomenal BBQ, live music, and friendly people. It’s a country unto itself and you can really be yourself here.
