I am always seeking new opportunities in software engineering and leadership at a small to medium sized company. With my experience, I am confident that I would be able to help grow a development team and encourage best-practices and innovation in writing code, testing, and scalability. I have a passion for architecting well-designed, service-oriented and testable applications and systems. From my background as a technical lead in university as the IEEE President and lead engineer on our senior capstone to my lead experience at Qualcomm and Fullscreen, I am confident in my abilities to lead a team from proof of concept to a multi-service application functioning at scale.
In my free time, I enjoy boxing, hiking, freelance web development, and riding/working on my 1982 Honda CB750 motorcycle. I am always looking to expand my professional network and find out about new opportunities.
