Author of Mastering Salesforce DevOps. Software architect, developer, and product leader with a focus on the human side of software development.
Trained as an engineer, I spent fifteen years as a Buddhist monk, teaching meditation and personal transformation and helping develop communities of practice. These days I study the intersection of business, technology, and psychology through systems thinking. My next book on this topic is coauthored with Steve Pereira, and will be launching from IT Revolution Press in Fall 2022.
Organizations are complex systems that arise from personal interactions. Bringing peace and meaning to work creates organizations that learn, adapt, and thrive. My speaking and writing focus on explaining technical concepts in simple terms.
I’m currently Senior Director of Research and Innovation for Copado, the leading DevOps platform for low-code SaaS systems. Before joining Copado I worked as a developer and architect at Appirio, where I learned the joys and sorrows of release management and led the creation of Appirio DX, a set of tools to enable Salesforce CI/CD.
At different times, I led Appirio’s technical governance, DevOps, and certification programs and gained 16 Salesforce certifications. I’ve spent a large portion of the last twenty years as a teacher and public speaker, including many recent DevOps and Salesforce conferences. I live in San Diego with my wife and two very sweet dogs.
