About Me

Hello! I grew up in Seattle and have been living in Europe since 2006. I’m a quadruple citizen from the US, UK, Canada and France and since 2015, based in Zurich, Switzerland with my wife and two daughters.I work at Credit Suisse where I lead an agile Value Stream with global teams to create new user experiences, empowering an engineering culture with a mindset focused on business value. Previously, for almost 10 years, I was based in the UK working for Barclays Bank in London's Canary Wharf. Before then, I was at JPMorgan Chase, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Boeing Phantom Works in Seattle.Continuous learning is important to me. In addition to majoring in Business and Information Systems at the University of Washington, I also completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Management from Ashridge Business School and obtained certifications in Advanced Project Management from Stanford University and PMI's PMP certification.Extracurricular activities have shaped me into who I am today. Being an Eagle Scout has taught me leadership and lifeskills. I also trained, taught and competed as a Blackbelt in Shito-Ryu Karate which instilled humility, respect, and discipline.My interests include emerging technologies, Raspberry Pis, traveling to extraordinary destinations, indulging on local cuisines, cycling and running with a goal of running a marathon on every continent.
