Hire me

I got my first computer at age 7 from Sears. In those days it was about experimenting with my Apple II & Texas Instruments 99/4A with RS/232 Adapter, Modem Coupler, and Speech Synthesizer. I never thought I'd be driving massive global scale in the Cloud, hyper-focused on KPI's & business outcomes, while delivering continuous-everything all on-demand. Here's my thing: I deconstruct. I disassemble. I admire form and study function. I analyze interactions, their causes and effects. I'm not afraid to take things down to the bare-metal while at the same time always staying focused on the big picture. So nowadays, it's about creating exciting product experiences for consumers. Experiences powered by services. Services powered by software. Software powered by innovation. Yeah, I just said that. It is a magical time in the history of technology, social connections, and communications. And boy do I love what I do.
