DELIVERY LEAD/SOFTWARE ENGINEER
Personally, I spend a lot of my time playing games with friends or hanging out with my dog, Scout. In the office, I am focused on leadership and team building, specifically helping the individuals on my team learn and grow as well helping my teams work through dysfunctions and establish useful and helpful processes. On teams and with code, I'm most excited about walking into an established system and improving it.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE BUSINESS?
I've been an engineer for twelve years. The first seven in a (then) twenty year old codebase and waterfall system. The last five I flipped to various consulting gigs using agile methodologies and more greenfield projects.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB?
Investing in and teaching people.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOURSELF:
I once accidentally stabbed myself in the hand with a butter knife, and if given the choice, would recommend a hard pass on the experience.
