I am a Principal Consultant at SMX in the Commercial practice with a focus on Cloud Migration and Business Transformation efforts in the Healthcare industry. I have over 25 years of experience in Technology and Business Transformation across a variety of industries including energy, legal, financial, non-profit, and healthcare.

Throughout my career, I have led cross-functional teams and enterprise-level efforts in the delivery of products as well as mission-critical business transformation initiatives. I have extensive knowledge weaving Agile as a continuous improvement mindset, and Change Management practices throughout the enterprise to achieve unprecedented success.

Before joining SMX, I was a Sr. Principal Consultant at Slalom Consulting’s Products and Innovation practice where I led innovation efforts in the leveraging of cutting-edge technology to solve key challenges for clients across a variety of industries and spaces.

Although my first love was not technology, and at one point I thought of becoming a professional musician, I love technology in how it touches people’s daily lives. I am a firm believer in how we are uniquely positioned to make a difference in the lives of others by providing user-centric experiences that improve their daily lives.

I am originally from Argentina, the land of the tango, excellent wine and steak as well as world-class soccer, and moved to Houston in the early ’90s.  When not at work, you will find me in my home studio producing music or participating in different events throughout the community.  I’m an avid reader of philosophy, politics, history, religion, and the occasional spy novel. 

Leading with a values-centric leadership approach is very important to me. I wrote an article for the Forbes Technology Council to illustrates my views titled The Importance of Values-Centric Leadership. I also wrote an article on 5 Essentials Components of a Healthy Organization. These two articles provide a summary of how I lead and what is important to me. As leaders, we have a responsibility to move those values off the wall and into day-to-day conversations. We have been given talents for a purpose and everything that drives us should be geared towards maximizing them for the good of others.
