who am i
Born and raised in Los Angeles, I found a passion for computers when I was young. That, coupled with a drive for success, allowed me to grow from a self-taught web developer to a managing leader, overseeing dozens of engineers building applications for all platforms. A seasoned veteran in all things tech, I have worked on all types of projects, big and small, for diverse clients, from non-profits to Fortune 500 companies.
An avid surfer and outdoorsman, I enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures with my family and dog, and contributing to the tech community.
