Tell us about your current role and your journey here at Concurrency thus far?
I am currently the Principal Architect here at Concurrency, but my journey started off as a Senior Technical Architect on the Modern Apps team. Throughout my time here, I’ve helped Concurrency and the team grow in the Data & AI landscape, hopefully for the better!
What does being a Change Agent mean to you?
Being a Change Agent is one of those things that goes back to the original mission statements of Concurrency. We are here assisting people to get better at doing what they are doing, and as a Change Agent, I’m here to find change and find creative ways to help and assist our clients and their clients, or their consumers, find better ways to be productive or to create things that are easier to consume or use so that they can make their lives better. It doesn’t matter what the project is, I am bringing change and improvement in a non-threatening way so that we can become all better versions of who we are.
What inspires you and/or how is the work you are doing positively impacting organizations?
In the last 20 years, my type of inspiration has changed over the course of my consulting career. It went from chasing the title, the money, and the dream to now it’s more about what is keeping me inspired to keep doing what I’m doing, and one of those things is essentially fear. But when I talk about fear it’s not about fear of losing my job, but fear of the fact that we live in a world that in the last 20 years, things have changed a lot in terms of technology and what technology can assist us with and enhance as well. The thing is, because of the speed of technological improvements, it’s also about as a human being, keeping that going. So there is a constant fear of wanting to keep abreast of things so I can play my part as a Change Agent, and in this case, I want to be able to impact other people in organizations in the right direction. A solution I’m creating with or for the client, could not just impact client’s ROI, it could also impact tens of thousands of people in theory. I’m making sure that I’m finding ways to positively impact not just the organization but the people within the organization as well. That’s what keeping my “fear” as my inspiration, to keep abreast of the technical curve to ensure that everyone wins at the end of the day.
