I approach programming as a craft, dedicated to creating durable, long-lasting, useful code. As a leader, I build diverse, creative teams that produce great software. I'm fast and good.
I was very inspired by an early, pivotal encounter with the Ruby programming language, which introduced me to an open source, free culture ethos and community that shaped who I am today. Here's audio of a 10 minute talk I gave at the Stoop Storytelling Series in 2016 explaining how Ruby and Ruby-on-Rails work affected my professional life.
