Hello 👋

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

    My passion is simple: help people do great work. Across media, publishing, banking, and e-commerce I've seen the same story again and again throughout my career... The world's best companies are struggling to build software that enables efficient and effective operations. I specialize in this complexity; leading empowered teams to build custom software applications that simplify operational systems and processes. I love people-wins and coaching up strong individuals and teams. Outside of work, you might find me sharing dinner with friends or on an adventure with my wife and three daughters. Strengths: Strategist, Coach, Problem Solver, Catalyst, Empathizer
