About Blog

Infrequently updated, this is where I gather my thoughts on topics that I spend a lot of time thinking about, mostly related to lean process and technical leadership.

About Me

My business card at ThoughtWorks listed my title as “Optimizer.” While a little bit of joke, it’s not an inaccurate summary of me in a single word. I have brought a strong practice of kaizen to every team I’ve been on. Of course my fingerprints have been all over the big projects I’ve helped ship in the form of code and architecture, but it’s my influence on the team and team members that have had the most transformative and longest-lasting effects in the organizations I’ve worked at.

I’m currently an software engineer at Goodreads, with over a decade of industry experience. My favorite language is Ruby but I also enjoy using JavaScript. (I’ll also use Java if I need to).
