I like to make things better.
I make achievable plans that tie into a long-term vision through collaboration, focus and humor. During 20+ years in technology I have developed, coded, hacked, managed, mentored, led, deployed, designed UX & UI, and performed just about every role. Over time I've learned that making great software involves technology, people and process.
Born and raised in London, England I am now a resident of Washington, DC where I live with my wife and two daughters. Most weeks I play or coach soccer and am an avid Arsenal fan.
I enjoy the full cycle of presentations — the research, working out how to frame ideas, overcoming nerves — and present often at work to different audiences. I've presented at numerous conferences over the years going back to 2008:
