I'm a Portland, Oregon based software engineer and leader passionate about building great engineering teams with a focus on autonomy and accountability. I'm currently employed at Nike as a Senior Engineering Manager where I work as part of the Nike Digital Platform Engineering organization. If you've used the Nike+ Run Club or Nike Training Club apps, your data is managed by the systems my team built. Our current focus is on building better capabilities to power our digital marketing efforts.
I'm also the host of the Nike Tech Talks, a highly successful series of events showcasing world class subject matter experts from across the industry, an internal evangelist for and organizer of our open-source program, and a champion of building a strong and healthy engineering culture.
At various times I have been:
I have more books than I know what to do with and not enough time to read them all. Which is how it should be. I adore dogs, especially my own, and I love watching movies and binging on great TV shows (mostly British) with my wife.
