For my entire life, I have always had a passion for getting things done in the most efficient way possible. Removing the menial, robotic work from our day-to-day lives allows us to focus on the things that take our dreams and lives further. Since discovering what can be achieved with Smartsheet, I have focused my work to help businesses unlock significant efficiency gains through enhanced collaboration with workflow automation, increased visibility, and transparency to ensure effort is expanded on the right priorities.

Additional Technology Expertise
Dan Peterson, Ph. D.
President, Online Division
"The solution Ian was able to build helps kicks off the key questions that keep our projects on track. The visibility and ease-of-use with the environment has cut down on our meetings, removed previous menial Excel updates, and increased our overall accountability."
Engineering Directorate Operations Officer
"Managing a team of over 300+ engineers across multiple different projects was difficult without a clean resource management plan. Ian introduced and built a custom workflow for Smartsheet & Resource Management to help make our lives easier.
"I needed a true Smartsheet expert to help transfer my project templates and modify them with automations and alerts. Ian was that guy. He went above and beyond expectations to create a project dashboard that pulls in all the necessary data I need to see as a project lead."
"We came to Ian seeking a solution that would help us be better people planners. Our Resource Management process was cluttered and our data was innacurrate. Ian introduced us to Smartsheet and their Resource Management tool which revolutionized the way we planned projects."
