I'm a software developer with a real passion for problem-solving. I love nothing more than taking a complex challenge, breaking it down into manageable parts, and then developing innovative solutions that make a difference to businesses. This is true across the entire lifecycle, from web, application and API development to my other passion: incorporating technology and strategy into stand out digital marketing. Beyond software development, my bread and butter, I’m particularly proud of my experience teaching and mentoring others. I think it's really important to pay it forward and help others grow into confident, capable professionals. When not in front of a screen, I spend time with my wife, Michelle and my two daughters, Shai and Izzy, visiting northeast Ohio trails with our dog, attending music concerts, and finding creative recipes incorporating vegetables and herbs from our garden. What I love about what I do is that I don't feel a ceiling, I’m not racing to an end, I’m not motivated to get to an imaginary finish line; design is always changing and that allows me to just keep going and going. Plus, I like a little bit of doubt and pressure, and graphic design provides that every single day! In my free time, I enjoy gardening, sewing, and all things creative.
