Leadership Values

Illustration of a sun and farm


However, you find something, leave it better than you found it. It could be fixing some code, or maybe it's picking up some random trash on the ground.

Illustration of a side view of a face with a gear wheel inside


Even if you think you are an expert at something, approach every challenge with an open unjaded mind.

Illustration of a speed gauge


Race to your failures so you can sit back and enjoy your successes.

Illustration of a person at white board thinking


Everything we interact with actively or passively is an experience we must understand and analyze.

Illustration of a rocket ship


Anticipate a need or problem before it even arises. A client may approach you with a problem today, but the real problem they may face is not yet known.

Learning to code can be intimidating, but approaching it without fear will expedite your growth.

Talks / Workshops

I give keynotes and talks about design, product management, and code for conferences and universities.
