I am passionate about solving problems and delivering software with my teams. My career started by following these passions in a development role. I moved into leadership years ago because I wanted to build something bigger than I could build on my own. My current role has allowed me to form and grow new engineering disciplines & teams while architecting a clean-sheet PaaS-based SaaS product. I don't believe in perfect stacks; technology choices should fit the product, the business, and the people doing the work - amplifying strengths and hiding weakness. A trusting, honest, diverse team can solve any problem when given the leeway to do so. Growing & challenging those teams is what I love most about my work.
