Mark Twain

CONSULTING

There’s a great need for people who understand information systems, people’s interaction with those systems, and how to integrate more effective and efficient data processes. I’ve been retained as a consultant for many Boston-area large-, medium-, and small- enterprises. Please visit my consulting website for more details.
