I turn ideas and actions into software and back again.
Sessions / Jobs
For every 15 minutes
I’ve been the driving force behind a great variety and quantity of software built for both the market and internal audiences. I excel at matching technical means with business ends to build innovative and stable applications that can evolve with changing opportunities and circumstances. I have a superb record of delivering projects on time and on budget, a roster of delighted clients, and deep ties to the development community. I practice and spread techniques that increase quality, speed time to market, and decrease costs. Foremost among these are test driven development, service oriented (reactive) patterns, and reliance on business process execution engines over custom application logic. Recent years bring containerization, cloud native architectures, and functional programming techniques into the mix. I work effectively with founders and other stakeholders to hone product vision and with engineering teams to execute quickly. In larger institutions I drive the development process by building consensus across organizational boundaries. I’ve always been a big user of free and open source software, and try to leave every codebase I use better than when I found it. Most importantly, my consulting work is deeply rooted in what I learn shipping 2-3 applications EVERY year.

Front end engineering
- 15 years experience
I'm a competent all around front end developer, but I really like to solve engineering architecture problems in the client. I've been building extensible/maintainable client side applications since the inception of the form. On an exceptional basis I can be called on to bring an unruly front end code base under control. But it's better to hire me to put in place a good foundation.

Misunderstanding as Technical Debt
I've been thinking recently about how much of what we think about as technical debt is really avoidable. Here's a situation in which the way we interpret a technical course of action made a difference.
Could've been better
