With a background in software engineering and years of experience with a variety of platforms and
applications, I’ve accrued a vast depth of knowledge from many closely related disciplines. I am an
archetypical example of a generalizing specialist or versatilist. Today I spend most of my attention on
leading amazing development teams and setting the vision and direction for our products and the
organization, though I still like to dive into software architecture and code as time permits.
Let me describe the kinds of things I love to do (and that I’m really good at).
High-level decision making. I’m keenly aware that I’m not the smartest person in the room,
and I work hard to make every voice at the table heard. That said, after I’ve collected all the feedback,
I’m not afraid to make the hard decisions and be accountable for the outcome.
I’m a natural diplomat. Whether it’s leading a team or negotiating with stakeholders, I can
maneuver tricky situations with grace and tact. In fact, my personality type is known as “the
Mediator,” and the summary I just linked is probably 90-95% accurate to me personally.
I love leading and developing teams. Working with cross-discipline teams made up of product
managers, engineers, designers, and testers, I enjoy spending time with each team member, discovering their
strengths and bringing them to the forefront. I can work with people at all stages of their career, from
intern to senior, and I have a drive to grow tomorrow’s leaders.
Software with longevity is my passion. Regardless of my actual role or project, I love
working with systems that are built to last. This could be a platform meant to support many players or a
live game meant to extend its life well beyond box sales. I have a vision for the future and don’t build
Learning is a core theme of my career. I enjoy work that constantly throws new challenges at
me and requires me to learn and grow every day. Software is a fast-paced field with many opportunities to
explore both established and emerging tools and pick the best one for the job.
I back up my technology expertise with a customer-oriented vision.** Years of immersion in some of the best
cross-discipline teams in the business have taught me a lot about products, marketing, infrastructure,
operations, you name it. I can see the big picture and apply it to every step of the SDLC.
