The majority of my experience is in designing, building and releasing Web applications, services and Internet-enabled desktop applications. My teams have ranged as small as 3 up to an entire development organization of 45 people. As a manager, I am experienced in leading cross-functional teams of front-end Web developers, software engineers, testers and operations engineers.
