“Strong opinions, weakly held” is the philosophy that has shaped how I’ve worked for most of my adult life. I started my career as a research chemist, and the quote above epitomizes the scientific method to me. I have evidence-based opinions that I feel strong enough about to allow them to inform the decisions I make in both my work and my life outside work. As I learn new things, however, I update my opinions to include this new information. I try to encourage others to challenge my opinions; it’s how I continue to grow.
I have worked in the IT industry since 1999. I am passionate about agile software development, software quality practices, and continually improving how software is written and delivered.
