Top Senior Customer development Developers - Dec 2017
Lead Software Engineer at Disney Interactive
I am a software engineer and entrepreneur. I am currently working in the video game industry for Disney. I have started two tech-startups and tried multiple projects on the side. I have a passion for elegant solution to hard problems.
Entrepreneur + coder who can help you build and launch new products
Having just finished my contract after selling my last software company, I want to take some time to help others before starting my next company. I've been programming since I was 9 and have over 25 years of professional development experience. As a serial entrepreneur, I've started 3 software companies and sold 2. I bring deep experience and wisdom gathered over the past 25 years along with skills in hot new technologies like React & Node. I specialize in creating paradigms--conceptual maps that help people navigate your product, API or codebase. I help you draw the lines between concerns, organize related parts of your application and name the boxes in your architecture diagrams. I'm passionate about getting the concepts of your application right, since they affect everything from your user interface to your database design to how you organize your code. But I can also help out with gnarly debugging issues. In my volunteer work, I am a mentor for Venture Asheville, a mentor program based off the MIT Venture Mentoring Service. I mentor startups using frameworks like Scrum and Lean Startup to search for product-market fit, then figure out how to scale their businesses to achieve rapid growth. In my personal time, I am an avid swing dancer & barefoot runner. I practice life hacking--using tricks and techniques to improve my habits, lifestyle and happiness--and continuous personal integration, where I introspect the challenges and successes in my life to improve my performance and to stay aligned with my life goals.
Since 2004, I've worked as a senior software engineer at publicly traded tech companies, as well as early-stage Y Combinator (venture investor backed) hardware and software technology startups in Silicon Valley. I'm currently a freelance / contract software developer for multiple clients, including GE (General Electric). I've also been a private tutor for 15 year old kids with zero programming background who want to learn full-stack web development with Python and Django.
