In my 25-year career, inspired by a mentor, I champion the idea that "Software is a people endeavor." As an engineer and technical lead, I focus on instilling teams with values and principles for high-quality technology. I emphasize robust processes, not just tools, as the foundation for effective technology. My drive lies in facilitating teams to excel, fostering satisfaction, and producing superior software. With diverse professional services experience, I've contributed to projects in education, health care, e-commerce, and currently, social analytics and big data.
Rooted in Nature and Humanity
Coming out of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I stand at the intersection of nature and humanity; but it didn't start in 2022. Following a serendipitous relocation to Nairobi, Kenya, in 2006, I dedicated nearly a decade to championing sustainable development through education. Firmly convinced of our profound connection to the natural world, I advocate for healing and inspiration through deeper engagement with it. My ongoing journey involves actively seeking experiences and acquiring skills to bolster endeavors that contribute to a more healed, creative, and authentic existence.
