My career has spanned a wide range of industries from startups to enterprise and everything in between. Technology is my creative outlet, and am always looking for something new to learn. I straddle the line between engineering and leadership living solidly within both worlds. This has lead to a holistic view on problem solving that combines people, process, and technology. I have become an evangelist for developer experience and sustainable software architectures. My core belief is that working with technology doesn't have to be a painful process and it should make your life easier.
