Intro

It’s an exciting time to be a developer!  With the emergence of the cloud, we have a new set of tools at our disposal to build loosely-coupled, highly-available, scalable applications.  I have over 15 years of experience as a key player in early-stage through late-round startups.  I’ve built everything from Windows services to an Ad API that can handle 10,000 requests per second per node.  This experience allows me to architect solutions to complex problems with the right set of technologies.  I can’t wait to see what problem I’ll be solving tomorrow!
