I am the President and founder of the The Software Guild in Akron, OH.
As a technology leader, I have managed developer, database, and QA professionals. As a skilled architect, I have designed and implemented many complex systems, including an insurance system which covered all facets of the business from sales to policy servicing and claims processing. Additionally I have provided leadership and advisory services in cross functional initiatives including product strategy, process improvement, and resource planning.
At the Software Craftsmanship Guild our cohorts allow apprentices to experience the practical application behind taking a modern application from start to finish under the guidance of mentors. Throughout the process they not only receive feedback from the mentorship staff, but also the regional community at large due to the Guild’s relationship with individuals working in the field who volunteer their time to the cohort. All of this serves not only to set a quality standard for their careers, but also accelerate their learning.
