Values-driven, growth-oriented software engineering and leadership

When I'm building software, I learn everything I can about my users' and my team's goals. I make actionable plans and create opportunities to succeed.

I view my stakeholders as partners. And I bring a unique blend of technical expertise, non-technical language, and empathetic insight to my work.

I foster an environment where everyone's unique strengths and ideas have space to grow.
