I spent the last twenty years in the great city of Boston, mostly at startups, writing software, architecting software, shipping software, having fun helping companies to get off the ground and run into the ground, changing jobs, hiring, occasionally managing people.

That’s a lot of time to look around, think about things, form strong opinions, share them with people around me. Time to start writing it all down.

Beyond software, I like biking and sailing, not as sport, but as a powerful way to slow down, clear my head, start putting my thoughts together, become a better, more thoughtful person—and thus a better, more thoughtful engineer.

I am not actively looking for a job at the moment, but I am always open to meeting new people and learning about cool gigs. If you are in the area, drop me a line, let’s get together for a cup of strong black tea.
