About Cypress Consulting


I started Cypress Consulting with the goal of helping others achieve success through finding, documenting and presenting IT deployment stories.

While always attacking business challenges with an entrepreneurial approach, this is the first time running my own company. And I am thoroughly enjoying every aspect of it.

Though a seemingly straightforward concept, I know customer reference marketing requires coordination across multiple stakeholders and functional areas; and persistence, diligence, and precision to deliver top quality results. It is for these reasons that I have a great passion for this field and am confident I can help others succeed.

Cypress Consulting recently expanded its services to include messaging, marketing content planning, and production of business-value whitepapers, product demonstration videos, and solution data sheets.

I look forward to helping all clients achieve market leadership, and collaborating with writing, video, and communications partners to do so. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly to discuss working together in what I see as a very dynamic area of business.
