Ciena role
My primary task is to understand our customers’ business problems and help them unlock network value, including modernizing and monetizing the network.

Musical Influences
I was influenced primarily by acoustic guitarists and the softer side of rock and roll.

Some of my favorites include the great finger-style guitarists (Jorma Kaukonen, Tommy Emmanuel, Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, and Paul Simon) and the art-rock or classic vinyl crowd of the 70s (Genesis, ELP, Yes, Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, and the Allman Brothers).
