A Season of Change

Almost three years into my career at IBM, I find myself moving onto my third job for Big Blue. I joined IBM Software Service for Lotus, in January of 2006 after having worked as an independent Business Partner focused on Lotus Domino Web application development. As a Senior IT Specialist with ISSL, I designed and developed Domino, Forms, Sametime and Quickr solutions for customers worldwide. As Lotus Connections emerged in the field, I worked on many of the key projects for ISSL, providing architecture and implementation guidance to customers, business partners and colleagues. Last year, I transitioned to the Lotus Greenhouse team as their Technical Team Lead and helped bring in many of the Lotus technologies that are hosted there today. This week, I am excited to get started with the Lotus Connections product team and will be joining Suzanne and Baan as a Product Manager.

Lotus Connections, has taken off in the Enterprise 2.0 space and I am sure it will only continue to rise. I'm very much looking forward to bringing my background and experiences to this social software offering and can't wait to see what comes of this new job.
