About me

I am a Director of Engineering/Architect, hockey player,, Disney fan, and family man.

As a Director of Engineering I'm a firm believer in modern practices such as Servant Leadership, Domain Driven Design, Microservices, Containers, CI/CD, Dev Ops and deploying to the cloud. I most enjoy designing and building distributed systems built using microservices, but I'm not too particular about what technology I use to build them. I have built production systems in Java, .Net/.Net Core, and Node deployed to AWS and Azure, but I'm open to other things as well.

As a hockey player. I've gone from someone that wants to play as competitively as I can and keep getting better to someone that just does it for fun and exercise. Nowadays I'm just happy if I can get up and down the ice without looking like an idiot.

I'm a big Disney fan. I've loved going to Disney World since I was a kid,, and I never seem to get sick of it. Everything from the theming, to the rides, to the food. Every time I go there I'm trying to soak it all in. My favorite park is probably Magic Kingdom, and my favorite ride is Splash Mountain.

And the best for last. As a family man I love to spend my time out of work with my family.  Either driving my kids to or from all their sports, playing board games, or going to Disney with them. '
