  • You require a solutions architect to advise on the viability, scalability, and requirements of your idea, product, or codebase
  • You want to accelerate a technical team’s transition onto anything in my skillset and want a mentor to help them navigate the change
  • You need a functional MVP of a greenfield project (and don’t much care about how it looks)

About me

I thrive in ambiguity, discovery, experimentation, and iteration.

In engineering, I am pragmatic and advocate for the simplest possible solution that delivers immediate value while correctly setting the stage for anticipated future evolution. In communication, I am empathic and strive to be deliberate and concise without omitting courtesy. In leadership, I am patient and try to cultivate curiosity, kindness, and rigor.


Caveats

I do not work with cryptocurrency, web3, or gambling technologies.
