About Me

I enjoy: • Building and leading technical teams as a compassionate servant leader. • Evaluating and negotiating with technology vendors with laser focus on ROI. • Data engineering from design to development, especially on wildly heterogeneous data. • Balancing mission against security across policy, architecture, and end users systems. • Teaching and mentoring

I've been fortunate enough to: • Build engineering and internal technology teams from scratch to over 15 engineers, both internationally and domestically • Guide a startup's technology team from seed through series B. • Guest lectured at George Mason on law and policy for big data. • Data engineering, systems and security architecture, and AWS cloud integration for the US Intelligence Community. • Extensive international travel for work and fun.

I value: • Humility and openness to feedback leading to personal growth. • Building and working in diverse teams. • Working through challenges to establish productive, stable relationships. • I strive always to be kind, honest, and fair.
