Startup co-founder and builder with over twelve years experience delivering user focused products/platforms at scale.
I have a wide variety of industry experience that spans large corporations (Intel, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Auth0, and Okta) to mid-series startups (Apptentive) to co-founding scrappy seed/boostrap startups (AppThwack and Routegy).
I am a Michigan native (Yooper) but have spent the last decade+ in the lovely Pacific Northwest (Portland & Seattle).
Tinkering with computers/technology from an early age lead me to a Computer Science degree from Northern Michigan University in my hometown of Marquette, MI. Through a collaborative internship program between Intel and NMU working on building city-wide WiMAX networks, I got my start in the industry and have building products/companies ever since. Many thanks to all those that I’ve met along the way!
In my free time, I enjoy quality time with family, hiking up mountains, running half marathons, pub trivia, improv comedy, and working on many of my open source projects.
If asked to describe me, others would likely mention my attention to detail, quick wit, use of puns, and innate ability to recall obscure movie and TV show quotes.
