I am a Technologist in the Innovation Lab at Resource/Ammirati with more than 15 years experience architecting, executing, leading, and mentoring software engineering teams. I am self taught and sometimes referred to as a bit of a renaissance man due to the many different technologies and trades that I've had the opportunity to immerse myself in. My unconventional career track has resulted in an unconventional way of thinking, whereas I tend to see solutions that others either don’t, can’t or won’t.

My work is based on a very simple set of guidelines:

I spend most of my time in rapid development life cycles; idea ⇌ prototype ⇌ test ⇌ develop ⇌ pitch ⇌ deploy. Full-Stack JavaScript development with Node.js is my primary focus these days. I still do a lot of other things, but I try to keep this paragraph as up-to-date as possible. If you're ever curious, check back here. :)
