As a top Industry Analyst at Forrester, one of the largest market research firms in the world, I help Fortune 1000 companies improve the technology experience of their employees to drive higher engagement, retention, and satisfaction. In 2020, I published the world's first evaluation of End-User Experience Management technologies and just released the updated version for 2022. A trusted advisor to many of today's leading software companies, I leverage a unique blend of honesty, analysis, and empathy to help vendors better align their product roadmap investments to customer needs. I'm a frequent keynote speaker at industry events, including 1E's Work From Anywhere, Aternity's Digital Experience Now, Nexthink Experience, and RSA Conference. A sought after industry expert backed by years of customer research, my insights have been featured in BizTech Magazine, ComputerWorld, CNN, Reuters, TechTarget, and ZDNet.
Based out of Boulder, Colorado, I am a passionate rock climber, skier, and mountaineer with plans to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in September 2022.
