I started my development career writing Windows apps in the early 1990s; I was a C++ and OOP fanatic. Worked on shrink wrapped and vertical market products and eventually settled down to consulting. From 2003 to 2013 I ran PJPM, a consulting company focused on small businesses and startups with an emphasis on QuickBooks integration. The next several years I spent at Practice Fusion, where I learned a lot about web scale engineering and working with a larger engineering team. Currently I'm at Horoscope.com, Inc. were I work with multiple teams and a polyglot infrastructure. My focus is continual learning to find efficacious strategies and enable powerful teams.
