Intro

Hands on engineer with well over 20 years of industry experience building on the web. From the early days of battling with Internet Explorer to the latest in serverless cloud native architectures designed to scale for millions of users, I have seen and experienced quite a bit. I believe that software engineering is an art and we are artisans, constantly striving to learn and improve in my craft. I always look for simple yet elegant solutions to the most complex problems, but am most satisfied when I hear that someone enjoyed using the software I helped create.
