CEO | Entrepreneur | Software Developer


I grew up in New York City, a marvelous melting pot of people from all races and religions. We lived in the Lower East Side and later moved to the Upper West Side. My father worked in “data processing” and his work inspired me to get into software at an early age. During a year off from college, I began programming professionally for a Wall Street bank. I continued working for that bank through and after college. In 1996, I founded Industrial Logic with the vision of sharing the “light and magic” of excellence in software development. I’m an early pioneer of the agile/lean movement in the software industry. I hold zero certifications though I continue to learn about and improve our craft. I’m the author of Refactoring to Patterns and a forthcoming book about excellence and agility.
