Well versed in design systems, front-end patterns, architectures, trends and technologies. I gravitate towards statically typed ECMAScript and C based languages. I've been working with Flux architectures in React and React Native projects but I also enjoy native iOS and Android development. I've worked with back-ends written in Ruby, Elixir, Go, Node.js and PHP. The last couple of projects have relied on GraphQL coupled with Apollo on the client.

I have been a trusted advisor for C-level executives, entrepreneurs and investors. I've refined processes and scaled organizations through growth and contraction phases. I seek opportunities to create business value through product development and mentorship of software engineering teams.
