Office Hours

How does this work?

I am an individual that cares about two things; technology and the people that allow technology to flourish. One cannot be successful without the other and my career goals are simple, for year-over-year to be in a better place than where we once were, repeat the process, innovate! I hire and work with talented developers; both web developers and software engineers. We are all asked to excel at our trait and collectively contribute to making enterprise level products using various libraries, frameworks, or methodologies that just get the job done. We work on high trafficked applications used by internal departments, operations teams, business units, and most importantly, the general public as our end-users. Monthly ComScore uniques are now +80 million and growing cross all digital platforms. My team and I are proud of the applications we develop; they are built for scale, address concurrency and volume, and "most"​ of the time they work without bugs or edge cases! I oversee systems architecture both physical and virtual environments, application design/development/testing, project roll-outs, development process management and developer management, and culture building. "This is the best iteration yet"​ is something you'll often hear the E! Interactive Team saying to one another.

After moving to the cloud, the team became the first brand in NBCUniversal's Cable Entertainment business to be 100% cloud based. Our current focus is now more on DevOps concepts, Cloud first approaches, modern development tooling and standards, DaaS and more with CI/CD. We adopted the following technologies: Webpack, NodeJS, GraphQL, AWS Lambda and Step Functions, NPM, SwaggerHub for API development, Scaylr for logging, and ChefStack. Aside from technologies, I've been a technology evangelist and teacher to the various teams within the organization with many relationships with folks in legal, business affairs, marketing, linear show production, new media (video processing), product and operations, etc. Continued to manage department financials (CapEx/OpEx) and doing cost savings analysis on how we work along with LRP.

Director of Technology

As a Director of Technology I was challenged to take over other department's applications and overhaul them into our publishing ecosystem and ownership. In addition to additional application and team size oversight, I also ventured into overseeing datacenter operations. Managing a physical datacenter location with a NOC and 24/7 support system was a great way to expand my knowledge from software only to software and hardware based solutions. During this ownership, I pushed the total cost analysis for the company of technical operations and the cost savings and efficiencies possible with cloud technologies.
