I'm a servant leader by nature; an experimenter and continuous learner driven by curiosity; an entrepreneur at heart.

I love to serve and grow teams of developers as we tackle creative problems.

To keep my creative passions fed, I do video production work 🎥🎬 on the side and am working on perfecting my pizza recipe. 🍕

Shut down a product
Last night, eight months after announcing the end of RoomTap, I was finally able to turn off all the AWS servers and other services now that every customer has been off-boarded. It was a sad moment, but I'm still happy we made the product.

Now to figure out what's next!

Published a new blog post for 1904labs: Why One-on-Ones Are Core to Servant Leadership

You have to remember that one-on-ones aren't just status updates for your current project, they're a critical tool for ensuring you truly know your team members and are serving their needs.

Shut down a startup
Shut down a product
After two years of trying to grow and pivot our product, RoomTap, into something profitable, we decided it was time to let it go. It's a bittersweet thing to let go of your first "real" stab at your own startup, but satisfying to not let it wither a slow death while we learned to hate it.

I can't wait to figure out my next thing to try!

Launched a product
We launched RoomTap. Originally designed to be meeting room coordination software for businesses, the pandemic forced a pivot. Eventually, it became a coworking space management system until we shut it down in May 2021.
