Software engineering manager
I am an engineering leader specializing in service oriented architecture including micro-services. I have over 18 years of experience in the field with a breadth of knowledge that matches. I've worked for large and small companies across a variety of fields and products. I am results oriented with a strong bias toward action without sacrificing quality.
As a big proponent of opensource software, I contribute back to the community whenever I can. Check out some of the Code I've written and have made available via packagist.org.
In my free time I enjoy restoring vintage Vespas, gardening, and working on personal open source projects.
For those curious, here is my home office setup.
