Professional Profile

Perspective on Roles


Software architecture and development are my passions. It's also important to consider perspectives of not only those using your product but those funding and supporting your product and APIs.


I believe to be successful and complete the mission, a leader must trust their people, create and environment for success, hear and act on the team's concerns, and remove obstacles that prevent the team from completing their work.


Focusing and prioritizing on customer need will drive better results. This means that we must seek to understand the vision and goals for the product and how it supports business need.
