I consult widely with major corporations and institutions, provide seminars worldwide on telecommunications, and am the author of The Essential Guide to Telecommunications, a non-technical guide to mobile and broadband networks. I consult on networking and VoIP services, teach at Northeastern University, provide expert witness consultation in litigation involving telecommunications issues and give talks on industry issues.
Areas of Expertise
Working with end-user clients gives me a unique perspective on enterprise requirements. For many clients, access to high-speed networks is the lifeline of their business, connecting them to customers, online resources and the Internet.
My depth of experience and contacts with both end-users and vendors give me a unique perspective on industry issues. The networking landscape has become increasing complex in the last five years. These changes, spurred by regulatory rulings, carrier consolidation and technological innovation have drastically changed users’ expectations and speeded up communications and business transactions on a worldwide basis.
I lecture in the Master’s degree program of Informatics at Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies where I teach courses on Computer Systems and Networks. Teaching at Northeastern and interacting with students from all over the world, provides me with first-hand knowledge about market trends in Asia, Latin America, Africa and Europe as well as the United States.
I have taught in South Korea for the State University of New York at Stony Brook’s Master of Science in the Technology Management Program. In addition, the Fundacion de la Innovacion Bankinter selected me to participate in their Future Trends Forums in Madrid. The Massachusetts Network Communications Council awarded me the Telecom Professor of the year. I was formerly in marketing at New England Telephone Company (Verizon Communications) and Telecommunications Manager at Dennison Manufacturing Company (Avery Dennison).
