About Me

I believe in providing value, value that the business wants and needs. Technology exists as a means to an end, and that end is value. I work with the Microsoft stack, cutting edge web technologies, and sophisticated management processes like Kanban and BDD to provide iterative, sustainable, repeatable, high velocity, value driven solutions that continually add to the bottom line. I can help you get things done.
