New technology is cool, but I think using new technology to make things happen is even cooler. The business of building software is ultimately concerned less with tech than it is with people, but that's something often lost in translation between business folks and geeks. My knack for getting along with both the suits and the beards helps me ensure that the best technology is used to create the best experiences.

I am a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) and believe that an agile development methodology is the only way of building software that both gets things done and keeps all the relevant people happy.

I've lived in Europe for much of my life, including Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany and Spain. (The rest's been in DC, Philly and NYC.) I'm fluent in Spanish and German, and proficient in Czech. I love cooking, and have worked as a cook at a children's summer camp in southern Bohemia.

I'm an information addict and spend far too much time on Wikipedia. I love discussing language, technology, mathematics and philosophy.
