About Me

Author of Mastering Salesforce DevOps. Salesforce 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.

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 offer free classes on personal transformation at, and blog at

I’m currently Senior Director of Product Marketing for Copado, the leading DevOps platform for Salesforce. 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 Salesforce conferences. I live in San Diego with my wife and two very sweet dogs.
