I specialize in managing small, focused teams working to develop, implement, and improve software and hardware solutions to large business problems. I primarily focus on the Automotive and Media & Entertainment industries, but have also done work in Finance, Education, and Retail.
Beyond my consulting work and the industries I closely follow, I also have a variety of interests that fill my spare time. You can often find me working on side projects in these areas.
I think games can be used to encourage learning and boost early age education results at home and at school, so I make educational games for kids on mobile devices. You can take a look at my games on the Learning Yard website.
I've always been interested in China's role as business powerhouse, population center, and cultural icon. I spent over a year in China learning Mandarin, immersing myself in the culture, and working at a cross-cultural consulting company.
I enjoy taking a break from technical writing to write screenplays once in a while. I have authored several shorts and feature length scripts already, and continue to work on more in my free time.
Developed a hardware prototype enabling safer, faster multimedia interactions in cars. Visit the ReactiveTouch site for more information.
I led a long-term project at Toyota to design, build, and deploy a new customer experience dashboard used by dealerships and management personnel nationwide to monitor and improve customer satisfaction and retention.
I constructed a tip jar with an Arduino-based LCD module that connects to the Venmo API and displays payments in real-time. It fits in a mason jar so you can, of course, also tip with cash.
In my spare time I run a small studio that creates educational games for kids on mobile devices because I think education can be vastly improved with entertainment technology. Visit the Learning Yard website for more information.
