I love solving problems. I love to write code, improve teams, and lead technical decisions.

I've been fortunate to work with a lot of teams and do a lot of different things in my career and that has given me a great perspective of what works and what does not. I'm interested in working remotely as a software developer, but would love to find a startup that needs a CTO or technical partner.
