About me

Life-long learner who believes that any skill can be learned and mastered so long as sufficient time and effort is dedicated to the task.

Software design is, at its very core, a collaborative, team-centered enterprise. Nothing in tech exists without a team of individuals working together, pushing one another to be their best selves. At a personal level, I love the intellectual challenge software design brings, but my animating force for choosing this field as my career is the need to be a part of and help foster dynamic, inclusive teams, comprised of individuals who are striving for greatness, always looking for that next challenge, that next skill to master.

Avid mountain climber. Outdoor enthusiast. Father.
