What do you do?

I instruct, mentor and develop the next wave of engineers through continuing education while managing the group of engineers who build the platform those students use to learn.


Teaching is important to me because I started my web development career w/o much formal CS education - I want folks to know they can succeed whilst traveling a “non-traditional” to get there. Management is fulfilling. I find more purpose and effectiveness in positively helping teams of engineers deliver great experiences.
