Builder of minds.
Writes code that writes code.

I've spent over 20 years in software engineering and computer science using technology and code as creative expression to solve real world problems. I've consulted with governments, non-profits, and Fortune 500 companies to inform decision-making, transform organizations, and innovate solutions.
