I am a creative, meticulous problem-solver at home in the board room and the server room. I can write you a FUSE-based filesystem but clean up real nice to talk to regular humans about the schedule, budget, and goals of a large project. I have experience in building platforms, nurturing distributed systems, designing APIs, growing engineering teams, mentoring junior engineers, and creating great engineering culture.

My consulting practice focuses on technical assistance for growing startups: architecture and strategy for platform development and API design, technical due diligence on both humans and software, and tactical software engineering. I am in New York City and have extensive experience working remotely from a variety of time zones.

Contact me and we can talk about what I can do for you. Read on to learn more about me and enjoy my profile on LinkedIn.
