About Me

With my recent experience in big data and data science I am able to apply prior knowledge and software engineering skills accumulated over 15 years to help build solutions that solve business problems, surface trends that shape markets, etc. in new ways than imagined before. I am a fast learner, active blogger, and an effective liaison across technical, product and marketing teams.
As a technology evangelist, I am passionate about evaluating new ideas and trends, and helping articulate how a technology would address a given business problem. I also enjoy writing and being hands-on to create compelling demos and applications.
As a full-stack developer, I have participated in all phases of software development life cycle. I started my career working for global enterprises developing applications for the city of Nashville, TN and the state of Colorado. Since then, I have been working as an engineer and solutions architect in agile environments–for tech startups in the Bay Area in varying verticals such as VoIP, Online Gaming, Digital Health, NoSQL database, and Big Data platform.
I live in Willow Glen-San Jose, California with my partner Claire and daughter Eva. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and my other passions are: high-altitude hiking, downhill skiing, travel, & photography.
