I am president of JavaScriptMN and a board member of ServerlessMN, two of the largest (now-virtual) software meetups in the Twin Cities area.
Previously, I was a principal software engineer at product studio Modern Logic, where I helped shape the technical hiring process, and led a team of extremely skilled React Native engineers. I have also been a research software engineer for digital agency space150 where I specialized in hybrid mobile apps and augmented reality. Earlier in my career, I built outage processes and identity management systems for the University of Minnesota.
