What’s your work-life philosophy?
My work-life philosophy is to learn from past experiences, continuously grow and always be present. Every day is an opportunity to strive to be your best.

What do you like best about working at UDT?
That’s easy, definitely the leadership, people, culture and the supportive environment. UDT is a company with a conscience and that makes all the difference!

What is your favorite technology solution? What solution do you depend on the most?
My favorite technology solution is Microsoft Azure and Hybrid Cloud solutions. I depend on the growing set of Azure services.

How do the solutions you work on help to make clients’ lives easier?
When you put in the time and effort to listen and do what’s right for the customer, the outcome is mutually beneficial. The solutions I work on help to enable customers to focus on the part of their business that they do best.

What do you think is the next big idea in technology?
Today’s technology options are so vast but those that can accelerate outcomes, save people time and provide an ultimate experience will be key, such as Mobility, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality. I think we’re just scratching the surface with these technologies.

How does technology accelerate progress toward delivery services?
By automating repetitive tasks, simplifying complex IT architectures and creating an orchestrated execution environment we are able to accelerate business outcomes.

What is the best professional advice you would give?
Be yourself, people will appreciate you for you. Be fearless, something I’m still learning from watching people close to me at UDT. It takes a team, everyone plays a part no matter how minor or extensive.

People would be surprised if they knew you…
Were born in Greece, grew up in Canada and moved to the U.S. about 20 years ago. I consider myself very lucky and grateful to have had the opportunity to make the U.S. and Florida my home.
