You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I've helped build startup businesses as a developer, architect, leader, and director. I am actually looking to code full time using Javascript Full-Stack technologies and would like to help a startup business build their software platform. I am interested in mentoring and partnering with great leaders.

Senior Architect that helped build a marketings services e-commerce startup and web platform from 0 to 400M in revenue that served 200+ clients and 2 million members. Designed and coded web frameworks, business layers, service layers, and databases. Built SDLC and DevOps standards and best practices. Led agile teams and helped build IT organization from 5 to 75 developers, QA analysts, DevOps engineers, and DBAs.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I look for transparency and honesty in all collaboration efforts. Agility is key with a focus on "value" for the customer as the most important component in the project portfolio strategy.

As an Advisor

I am an agile software engineer and have also directed and managed agile development teams. It is very important for me to focus on delivering working software and collaborating towards a value-driven solution. I look for efficient communication and interaction leveraging as many online-based tools as possible to capture project data and metrics fulfilling an "enter once share everywhere" project management strategy. This limits time spent on project admin and leaves more time for building great software.
