About

My name is Johnny. I'm an engineer living in the Washington, DC area. I work at iStrategyLabs in the role of Director of Technology. My specialty is real time application development and from time to time I teach courses at General Assembly. Want to work together? Shoot me a line and lets see what we can do. You can read my thoughts on Medium.

"I must feel the fire of my soul so my intellectual blues can set others on fire." - Dr. Cornel West

Passion

I'm a family man and I love spending time with those closest to me. Most people try to achieve a work/life balance but, when you love what you do as much as I do, it's just living life. I firmly believe in following your dreams and the persuit of knowledge. Never regret a decision if you learn from it. If you love something, don't let it go.
