The remote scrum teams were spread out amongst numerous time zones including Eastern European, Eastern US, Central US, Mountain US, and Pacific US. My management style is to use a shovel to move things out of the way instead of a whip to make them run faster.

About, Goals, Awards


I am an engineering leader with over fourteen years of industry experience. As an engineer, I have created and maintained everything from business card websites to multi-tenant enterprise platforms to multi-million user web applications. As an engineering leader, I have built & scaled multiple cross-functional development teams while providing transparency to executive leadership.

I have constantly been told that one of my best qualities is my attitude. I approach every problem with a positive outlook and a "let’s get it done" mentality. I have consistently delivered above expectations in every project I have worked on. I take great pride in my ability to adapt to any workflow as well as being a reliable member of any team. However, I am not too proud to show humility, and will be the first to admit when I am wrong. I am incredibly resourceful, a very quick learner, manage my time effectively, and have a keen eye for details.


Having achieved my goal of becoming an engineering leader, I am now looking to take on the challenge of delivering your next big idea. I am looking for a company that is ready to change the landscape of their industry and needs a leader to help them get there.


For three years in a row (2011 - 2014), I was awarded for being a mentor to my coworkers. In 2014, I took on the responsibility of training booj’s front-end developers on PHP/full stack.
