About Me

I have committed the last few years to both supply chain management topics and online marketing. My focus is the optimization of internal supply chain processes through implementing intelligent inventory management and demand planning software. I believe in the power of collaboration and find the wide array of discussions regarding supply chain management topics intriguing. As the editor for the inventory and supply chain optimization blog, my goal is to raise awareness to both current trends and news stories in the field of inventory and supply chain management.

Originally from San Jose, California, I have spent the last 5.5 years living in Germany.
