About me

Since becoming a professional, I’ve developed two passions: 1) Making software solutions that are valuable and predictable; 2) Raising the bar for software development in the Upper Midwest region. I started Prominent in the fall of 2009 as an independent software developer and I’ve served in nearly every role in software development - including developer, development lead, architect, quality assurance and project manager. Now, I focus on setting direction and vision for the best software development company (if I must say so myself) in the Upper Midwest. This includes strategic solutioning, software development process improvement and team leadership. I'm having more fun now than I've ever had before as a professional. This has everything to do with the amazing team we have at Prominent. It is a privilege to guide this great team.

Expertise

Custom software development, solutions architecture, executive advisory and business/relationship management.

Superpowers

Three things come to mind for my superpowers:

  1. An extreme ability to analyze, and sometimes over-analyze, nearly anything without letting emotions taint the analysis.
  2. A vastly superior sense of smell compared to normal humans.
  3. I put my pants on both legs at the same time.

Hobbies

Discussing business and entrepreneurship, theology, video games, target shooting, travel, quality restaurants (especially fast food), and anything fun with my wife and kids.
