Hi all, I’m looking forward to meeting you!


With a Master’s degree in Computer Science from RIT and undergraduate degrees in Information Systems & Information Technology, I have a broad background in technology. I love the sense of flow which emerges when diving deep into complex problems.

Professionally, I continually challenge myself; my favorite project is the next one coming around the corner. I believe technology provides leverage so that you can multiply the impact of your effort, and derive great satisfaction from knowing that I am enabling our clients to achieve their goals.


I worked briefly in database & system administration, but discovered my passion in software engineering. I am currently the Solution Lead of an Agile team developing a SaaS application hosted in Azure.


When I’m not at work or writing code for fun, I channel my energy by biking, running (I completed a marathon), and practicing yoga. My wife and I also enjoy renovating our 100-year-old home and hosting Airbnb guests.


Those who know me best will tell you I’m a poker shark, can’t resist chocolate chip pancakes, and plan to visit many of the old cities of the world someday.
