Customer-Focused Servant Leader & Team Builder
I have nearly 20 years of experience with computer hardware and software. I started out building computers as a hobbist and then moved into professional hardware support and small business networking. I later became a web developer using various languages and frameworks. I started my web development career building beautiful and functional websites working along side talented graphic designers. Later, I moved into architecting and implementing backoffice software solutions and integrating platforms.
Now, I lead agile software development teams consisting of software developers, business system analysts, and quality assurance engineers. I use my leadership training and experience to establish a psychologically safe work environment so I can attract and retain high-performing professionals.
I'm very grateful for the kind words of others.

I love to learn, tinker, and stay involved.
My favorite project right now is Mead Mate. It is the first app that I ever published on the Google Play app store. I use the app for mananging batches of homebrewed mead. It has been fun to build. Check it out in the app store!
Wanna buy me a coffee or a Diet Mountain Dew? I'd love that!
