“You learn more from failure then success. Don’t let it stop you.” - Unknown.

I co-founded PullRequest with two brilliant friends whom I admire greatly: Patrick Barsallo and Tyler Mann. We hold a strong belief that remote work is the way of the future.

For the past 20 years I’ve been an advocate of JavaScript and Personal Homepage (PHP); recently, I’ve become very interested in more modern and cutting edge tools, especially MongoDB and Kubernetes.

Hailing from San Francisco by way of Vancouver, I’m currently based in Austin, Texas - the world’s next greatest hub for technology and innovation.
