Who am I?

Software makes everything new again.

I'm inspired by technology. From the latest features on a phone to the leading edge of science in the cloud, no where else is there a world so full of possibilities.

I work to bring out the best in my team; I ask questions, and try to teach what I know to others. I lead with interpersonal skills backed by substantial knowledge and experience. I’m a realist, and at the same time I drive for high ideals. I estimate and re-estimate honestly and deliver.

The key to a successful software project

I personally believe close communication allows me to deliver exactly the solution needed. It is a fine balance between getting input from a stakeholder and acting without autonomy. I leverage my 10 years of software solution experience to make the judgement of when the technical decision is best made by developers, or when the business decision should be made by stakeholders.
