Hello 👋

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

    I hope you're all having a fabulous day! I was recently promoted to VP of Engineering at TrueAccord. I've been responsible for full-stack dev teams working in Scala, Java and Python, as well as QA and sysadmin functions. I'm excited to help folks grow by sharing my experiences from 20 years in Silicon Valley.
