Who I Am

A consulting technical lead based out of Minneapolis, MN with experience across a variety of languages, frameworks, and work environments. When I’m not on the computer, I love to travel, write music, and study the Dutch language.

What I Believe

That people are more important than software; that happy teams build better products; and that the most crucial function of my job is to be a helpful team member, curious learner, and effective teacher.

What I Do

I turn ideas into products—REST APIs, microservices, web & mobile applications, games, etc.—using whatever tool is most appropriate for the job. I’m always on the lookout for new (or old!) solutions to add to my repertoire.

Consulting Highlights (July 2014 - Present)
