I grew up near Buffalo, New York, and it was a childhood dream to live in a ski town.
The rust belt gave me an appreciation for the people who created with their hands – the welders, the carpenters, the mechanics, and the machinists.
I’ve always found value in making things, and in our age, software is where much of the creation is happening. I feel fortunate to have found my way in this profession, even if it is a bit more ethereal trade than those which came before.
I enjoy the entire process of not only writing software, but delivering value to users. Creating something from scratch and watching it find its way in the world was the most difficult challenge of my career, but it is the accomplishment I am most proud of.
