As Director of Pre-Sales Field Operations at Qualys, I lead a team of customer-focused technical hunter / account managers responsible for identifying, acquiring, and onboarding new large enterprise & public sector clients throughout the western half of the US. I’m based out of Chicago.

Previously, I managed a small regional team, and before that, served as Senior Pre-Sales Technical Account Manager, where I designed enterprise risk and vulnerability management programs for over 35 signature clients at both the executive and operational level. I also worked at AT&T for more than a decade in both New York City as well as Chicago, where I served in a variety of technical sales roles specializing in information security, SaaS, mobility & IoT, legacy wireline, DR/BC, and risk/compliance consulting.

I’m a lifelong student & practitioner of social engineering countermeasures, OSINT, OPSEC, physical security, and emergency communications. I hold SANS/GIAC certifications in threat intelligence and data security law, and have recently passed my exam for the GICSP (industrial control systems security). I’m also studying the historical and anthropological linguistics of Asia. I’m currently working to develop moderate conversational fluency in Tagalog, Japanese, Mandarin, and Hindi.
