About Me

I am a visionary Technology Executive, weaving over 15 years of expertise into the fabric ​of innovation and strategic leadership. At the helm of Qinship's technological frontier as ​CTO, I not only orchestrates the engineering orchestra but I also chart the course for ​future tech voyages. My toolkit is adorned with the jewels of modern software ​craftsmanship – Kubernetes, Docker, ReactJS, Angular, to name a few, showcasing my ​adeptness at navigating the ever-evolving tech landscape.

Beyond the digital realms, I don a red suit, embodying the spirit of joy as a Professional ​Santa Claus each winter, bringing smiles and laughter to all. Whether it's reveling in the ​pages of a new book, embracing the wilderness with my family, or delving into solo ​adventures — like my 113-day camping expedition during the 2020 COVID pandemic — ​my zest for life transcends the conventional. A dungeon master at heart, my passion for ​Dungeons and Dragons, 3D printing, and the magical universe of Magic, mirrors my ​professional creativity, blending fantasy with reality. With two energetic sons and an ​artistically gifted wife, my world is a vibrant tapestry of technology, adventure, and ​family.
