About me

I am a tech lead, which has experience in microservices at small and large companies. In my experience with microservices, I emphasize reducing complexity and building productive development teams. I promote a safe place for diverse perspectives, because if everybody is agreeing then nobody is thinking.

I find the best way to avoid sunlight is by spending an excessive amount of time coding, gaming and mentoring online. My obsession with development led me to author sites you know and love, like this one where I write about some ideas you love and some that you don’t.
