Hi, I'm Dan.
I’m a software developer that builds web applications with a focus on user experience.
I have 7 years professional experience developing software from fuel pump motor drivers and USB-C chargers to web sites with tens of thousands of regular users. I’ve led the charge in learning and teaching new technologies, developed a platform for Devops automation, and built tools that help automate testing of aerospace software. I graduated with a bachelors of science in electrical engineering in 2011.
Software is an amazing tool. It has made its way into so many areas of our lives. It allows us to be more efficient, safe, and has opened up opportunities that previously didn’t exist. It can also be a source of frustration and harm.
Knowing this, I believe:
- Software MUST be human focused
- Software MUST be robust
- Software MUST be secure
These principles guide my career. I evaluate all my decisions against them.
I live with my wife and 2 (soon to be three) kids in Hudsonville, MI.
