I am an engineering leader with over 15 years experience delivering highly distributed and scalable software solutions. My philosophy aggregates the brilliance of total motivation (TOMO), radical candor, and “starting with why,” combined with two decades of experiences building and leading award winning, high performing delivery teams. A craftsman at heart, I am most effective in environments where I can be strategically hands on while fostering the creativity and expertise of my teams.
