As CEO and founder of Sun Management, I love introducing new technology into the marketplace and then assuring its successful implementation into our clients’ organizations. The challenge of displacing the comfortable incumbent with the next innovative generation provides the challenge of competition that I love. I know without competition, there can’t be any growth. I am a father of two wonderful daughters, Nicole and Delia, and have been happily married to Maura since 2000. I enjoy swimming, cycling, shooting pool, a game of chess and a good argument. My degree in engineering, science and mechanics is from Virginia Tech.
As CTO, my main goal is to discover alternative, innovative solutions for our customers using the creativity and engineering expertise our clients have come to expect from Sun Management. I like to spend most of my time with clients to learn more about their current and emerging problems and exploring ways to effectively use different tools to solve those problems. I enjoy spending time with my partner, Christine, and my 3 children. Together we ski, hike, listen to music and try new foods.

I have over 25 years of IT operations experience at the Enterprise level in 24/7 operating environments. I’ve held several senior positions developing and executing operational strategies to promote organizational growth and optimal utilization of emerging technologies. As a corporate CISO, I practice the 3 tenants of security: confidently, integrity and availability as business enables. “No” is not a scalable solution. I believe security professionals need to be business partners who help drive growth.
My studies in computer science include a Master of Science from the University of Virginia and a Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M. I also have certifications as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Enterprise Architect (FEAC Institute).
I lead Sun Management’s team of field and inside sales professionals in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. My 25+ years’ spent managing start-ups and Fortune 500 companies gives me the dynamic, results-driven demeanor to develop successful, long-term relationships with Sun’s clients and alliance partners in the IT industry.
I have a dual master’s degree in business administration and education. On the personal side, I am passionate about exercise and play basketball or am in the gym almost every day of the week. My wife, Sharon, and I have 2 daughters – Nicole and Andrea.
Although less hectic than my prior role as a critical care and case management nurse, the ever-changing landscape of cyberspace intrigues me and keeps me motivated to manage the day-to-day finances at Sun Management. When I’m not juggling tasks at work, my husband, Rick, and I can be found cycling on the surprisingly extensive network of gravel roads in northern Virginia. I also volunteer for the Land Trust of Virginia.
As Senior Network Security Engineer, I am responsible for pre- and post-sale support for Palo Alto solutions as well as the emerging technologies Sun Management adds to our product portfolio. I help with customer implementations including the analysis and design of network architecture, firewall migrations and the implementation of advance feature sets found within the Palo Alto product line. I also specialize in the deployment of Palo Alto products within Microsoft’s Azure cloud infrastructure.
I earned a Master of Science from Towson University in Applied Information Technology and also have professional certifications (CISSP, PCNSC, PCNSE).
I joined Sun Management in 2007 after serving as resident engineer for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) where I helped design, implement and operate networking and security technologies that make up the DoD Enterprise Web Content Filtering and Intrusion Prevention System solutions. I have worked with Palo Alto Networks since Day 1 of their existence which makes me part of Sun Management’s solid foundation of Palo Alto Networks solutions.
I have Palo Alto PCNSE and PCNSC Engineering and Professional Services certifications and maintain “Hero” status in the Palo Alto Networks’ Cyberforce Partner Program.
