"When a flower doesn't bloom you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower."

Thanks for visiting my website. It is a mix of personal interests and professional experience.

My professional background is focused on software quality assurance, but not just pointing and clicking! My approach to quality assurance is engineering based with an emphasis on "pushing left" and building teams from the "ground up". This means understanding the importance of being involved early in the software development lifecycle, being able to create detailed documentation, reliable processes, automating error-prone, mission critical and mundane tests, as well as harnessing human strengths (like exploratory testing).

I also have speaking experience on a variety of topics software quality assurance-related. If you are interested in having me speak at an event, my contact information is in the footer.

When I'm not being a software quality assurance guru I enjoy a variety of activities, some of which are represented on my website. I like making craft cocktails , camping , building things , listening to the NPR show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me or listening to a good podcast from Wondery .
