About me

I’m a solutions engineer with more than 5 years of experience in BE/FE/DevOps

I believe the best products are designed out of scarcity. The only resource a team has is to build a counter-culture around the values that support the vision of the product in order for it to grow and thrive.

Reference

I went to school with Daniel and met him through the CS program. While I haven't worked with him professionally, I have corresponded with him about projects and ideas, and I have seen his code. Daniel is entrepreneurially-minded and has a lot of good ideas. He isn't afraid to voice his opinion, but he is also respectful and listens to others. He cares about code quality and maintainability. His code is clean and easy to read. He's passionate about learning and is able to dive in to new technologies quickly. Daniel would make a great hire if you're looking for someone who can learn quickly, question the status quo, and get stuff done.
