What are your credentials/past experience for working in your position?
I have spent many years in Software Engineering, from individual contributor to leadership roles. I have immersed myself in many aspects of the industry: Developer, Architect, Leadership, and countless in-between. I love building things with nothing but the power of my mind by taking code, ideas, or people and creating something fresh and brilliant from those pieces.
What do you like about working at S44?
S44 looks towards the future and considers how and what direction it wants to grow. Everybody I work with is super supportive and has done everything in their power to help me come up to speed.
What’s your background?
I was born and raised in New Jersey. From an early age, I have loved all things technology and science. After spending some years away, I have returned to the Northern part of my home state with my wife and two dogs. I love interesting food, good wine, and great friends to share them with. I am up for a friendly heated discussion of “who would win” superhero battle any time. I enjoy long walks with my dogs, playing sports, and when I can find the time writing fiction.
What are the values that drive you?
As a young man, I studied martial arts obtaining the rank of black belt. I took those lessons of discipline and perseverance as a guide for the remainder of my personal and professional life. As a manager, I believe engineers are the company’s backbone. Therefore, I will do all in my power to make sure my engineers have the environment to be their best selves and the opportunity to grow their careers to benefit them and the company.
The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from the air, creating by exertion of the imagination. - Frederick P. Brooks
