About Me

I'm an engineering leader and professional software engineer in San Francisco, currently leading product and engineering for Beautiful.ai, which solves the major problems with current presentation software. I have previously worked on a financial trading platform and an industry leading business intelligence reporting tool. Outside of work, I like to ski, climb, hike, bicycle, hang out with my dog, eat, drink, make music, listen to music, and enjoy the finer things.
