I am a dedicated software engineer manager with a strong background in technical leadership, project management, web-based development and cloud infrastructure. I have effectively guided teams in architecting, building, delivering, and maintaining scalable software applications.
Beyond my managerial and technical skills, I am deeply passionate about fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing within the technical community. I actively participate in technical community events, such as meetups, where I can engage with fellow professionals and exchange insights. Furthermore, I enjoy writing technical articles to contribute to the collective learning and growth of the industry.
My experience

Software Engineer Manager - Mile Two LLC

2023 - Present

As the Development Technical Lead, I collaborate closely with the Data and Design teams to build a product that enables resource sharing across directories in the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), enhancing collaboration and minimizing duplication of work. Our project faces the challenge of connecting to multiple data sources at different stages of development while ensuring access is limited to authorized users. We utilize Next.js and React for frontend development and employ Google Apigee as an API gateway to connect to various data sources and feed data into a knowledge graph. Additionally, I manage a team of four individuals, providing mentorship and support for their professional growth.

Software Engineer - Circulo Health

2021 - 2022

Worked on creating a mobile application using TypeScript and React Native as the frontend. In addition, I worked on developing a REST API using Golang and GORM in conjunction with a PostgreSQL database. Implemented AWS lambdas and step functions to facilitate different tasks such as programmatically finding anomalies in the data, handling it, and notifying our users through SMS and email.

Software Engineer - Mile Two LLC

2018 - 2021

Developed products and prototypes for both commercial and DoD clients using TypeScript and JavaScript with React as the frontend framework, Apollo/GraphQL as the backend. Collaborated with cross-functional teams to develop and design tools to improve analysts' use of technology to accomplish their missions.

Computer Science Tutor - Franklin University

2018 - 2019

Worked with students on one-hour sessions to clarify concepts across a variety of Computer Science subjects such as database management, data structures, and algorithms.

Volunteer - Code for Dayton


Collaborated on the creation of an anonymous platform where direct care nurses are able to report instances of compromised patient safety due to inadequate staffing. For this project, I designed the logo, color palette, and wireframes to help the other members of the team keep a consistent look through the site.
