My passion is building great software through strong teams. My focus is leadership and mentorship, but my decade plus of software development experience means I'm not afraid of getting my hands dirty. In the more recent experience I have been working on breaking the monolith into multiple microservices using Typescript, Node.js, GraphQL, React and AWS. I have also been working on building true full stack applications from infrastructure to services to UI.

Hey, I'm available every Tuesday at 4:00 PM (GMT)
