Doggo and I

Work

I'm a generalist in the public sector. I pinpoint policy shortcomings to make them better. I call out inefficient business requirements to kickstart process reengineering, instead of digitalizing said processes.

I push ideas and necessary trade-offs to different levels of decision-makers - senior management, business owners and technical teams.
