Chief Technology Officer
Atria Senior Living is a forward-thinking provider of vibrant assisted living, independent living and memory care retirement communities.
I'm a DevOps culture enthusiast, solutions architect, application developer, and well rounded geek-of-all-trades. I'm a dynamic problem solver who would be the first to admit to being a good programmer, an excellent debugger, and a phenomenal Googler. I like bringing my breadth of knowledge to positions I hold by balancing leadership, mentorship, experimentation, and innovation. I make sure to solve problems with an adaptive approach: application development and prototyping, finding the right off-the-shelf product, or just help by breaking the issue down into more digestible pieces for a team. I love the DevOps culture and am obsessed with the human side of the DevOps challenge -- tools are the easy part, the culture shift is the hard part. I will be honest and tell you "no" if a project or ask is not doable; I am not going to bury my team in work that isn't achievable. However, I will accompany that "no" with alternative solutions that will get you where you want to be and in ways you likely didn't consider. I choose the right tools for the right job and I'm not beholden to any one technology, language, or stack.
