With 20 years of IT experience and 15 years in software development, I've had the opportunity to serve in a number of roles, in a wide variety of organizations. During that time, I think I've gained some valuable insights into what it takes to be effective in this field.
I'm a problem-solver by nature. Whether that means writing code or directing others, pleasure for me is derived by assembling building blocks into a greater whole.
My goal is to work in a place where I'm inspired by those around me and challenged by the mission ahead.
