Technology should enhance our humanity, not distort it. As an experienced software developer, my goal is to create and disseminate quality software that respects the whole person of its users and truly makes their lives better. Such work should be polished, humane, effective, and dependable. As such, I hold myself to a high standard of competence in academic study, personal research, and professional performance. My attention to detail and conscientiousness are both driven by a commitment to excellence and integrity in everything I do.
Both as a professional developer and a research fellow, I have always sought to integrate all elements of my life. My studies in the realms of anthropology, literature, and philosophy, stem from the idea that the most effective developers must cultivate a strong interest in many things outside math and technology. A life well-lived is an integral part of who I am as a software professional, and I value my non-technical skills just as highly as my professional expertise. Because of this I am well-prepared to focus on the details of implementation while maintaining a firm grasp on the broader meaning of the tasks I undertake. By embracing a life of integrity, I am better equipped to pursue excellence in everything that I do.
Supported by my technical proficiency and commitment to healthy relationships, I aspire to grow in leadership responsibility so that I can contribute to both the creation of exemplary software and to the development of a sustainable culture that supports it.
