I am passionate about experimenting with new technologies and prototyping new ideas quickly. I am a fact-finder as much as I am a quick-start, which I think helps contribute to my ability to make decisions quickly and take calculated risks.
I have had the great fortune of working with many talented people, and am proud of the many complex systems that we have built and launched, many times to large user-bases and on tight timelines to hit a market opportunity. I would describe myself as a person who thrives in a teamwork-driven environment, especially under pressure, who is skilled at seeing the bigger picture of software development as it connects to the rest of an organization.
My favourite thing about software development is the ability to realize an idea from end-to-end, which has helped guide my varied technical background in infrastructure, database management, algorithms, operational workflow management, data pipeline construction, and system architecture and design.
