I'm a technical lead and former director of customer success. I believe that developing good software requires a deep understanding of how people will be using what I’m building and why it matters. I like working in and building highly collaborative, agile environments that put users first.

I spent the last four years building Contently, helping them grow from 10 to 100 employees, establishing an engineering culture that values clean code, automated testing, collaboration, openness and user-centric development. Now, I am taking what I learned on the road so that I can put my knowledge to work helping people and companies build products for the web.

I’ve always been more interested in the future than in the past.

I built products with Ruby on Rails, Elixir, React, React-Native and JavaScriptI served as the technical lead of a SCRUM team working as part of a cross-functional team to deliver business value and help our company grow. Automated testing is important and over the years I've experimented with various forms of Test Driven Development. While important, these tools and practices are just that: tools and practices. They are only important insofar as they support solving real problems for real people and delivering high quality software.

If you are a startup, an individual or a large company, I'd love to hear from you.
