In my current role as Director of Engineering at Blue Lava, I’ve had the opportunity to help define our roadmap, strategize on hiring, introduce tools like story mapping and feature planning, work directly with customers on feature requests, and implement automation that enabled my teammates to deliver more efficiently.

Before Blue Lava, I was Director of Engineering at Nike, where I led several teams of over 40 engineers responsible for the transition to real-time data and analytics. I was asked to streamline a number of disparate systems into a singular data platform with real-time capabilities. Under my leadership, the teams implemented everything from data capture, ingestion, streaming, warehousing, and machine learning. I focused on hiring and promotion, introducing roadmaps, budgeting, vendor relationships, establishing support efforts, and working cross-functionally with many internal stakeholders.

Before joining Nike, I directed the data platform efforts at Recurly with a core focus on building a high-functioning team. In the process, we introduced a DevOps culture that was soon adopted by the rest of the organization.

In my 27+ years of experience, I’ve worked across the full tech stack spanning from JavaScript to APIs to data platforms. I am genuinely interested in combining my implementation experience and acquired managerial skills into being a strategic engineering leader that consistently enables teams to deliver.
