I am the CTO and Co-Founder of LegUp, which helps families find trusted care providers for their children. I'm the father of two children, a former CTO at CarRentals.com (part of the Expedia Group), and active voice developer and enthusiast with more than a dozen published Alexa skills. I'm passionately curious about new technologies and write articles about my technical explorations and leadership ideology.
