Summary

I am a technical manager with a history of building a strong team by hiring talented employees. I push them to do their best while setting an example by working with them side-by-side. I put an emphasis on creating tools to solve problems and writing documentation to ensure that the people we work with have the resources they need. I am actively looking for my next opportunity to challenge myself and further my career in software engineering management.
