I’m a Software Development Leader with 25+ years of experience building full-stack applications on numerous platforms to solve business problems. I apply knowledge of several programming languages to deliver high-quality software solutions on time. My continuous improvement mindset focuses on leading software product development communities, increasing productivity, and automating your business.

I love diverse connected systems, people, and software that delivers business value. I follow the 80/20 principle and curiously explore several tools to avoid using the wrong tool. I value concise written communication that uses pictures to convey complex ideas. I’m an eternal student that enjoys sharing knowledge.
