Team leader and senior engineer with over 25 years of experience across a wide range of development, operational, and business disciplines. An incurable lifelong technology nerd who thinks CSS, regular expressions, and effective service instrumentation are fun, and best suited for work that requires a broad understanding and the ability to see and communicate the "big picture.”
