About me

Leadership, collaboration and dynamic problem solving played an integral part in my roles as a military-trained nuclear technician and a consulting engineer. Embracing the challenges inherent to military service allowed me to grow beyond my comfort zone and become a strong, well-trained leader. As a software developer, I'm proud that I can apply these skills which value the PROCESS in problem solving under variable circumstances while encouraging me to BE BOLD when taking on new projects.
