1st Person Biography:

I’m a Sr. Automation Engineer at BloomNation in Santa Monica, CA where I work to help accelerate our achievement of shippable quality. I’ve been helping to improve software quality since 2006 for a wide range of companies and startups focusing on testing web applications.

The last few years I’ve been giving more public conference talks and workshops as a way to become a better teacher but also to challenge myself. Before I joined the Board of Directors for the Association for Software Testing I was a Lead Instructor for the AST-BBST courses. I’ve also co-taught BBST Cem Kaner and been a peer advisor to James Bach’s Rapid Testing Intensive online courses. Prior to that experience I was a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer which is a fancy way to say I taught people how to scuba dive.

I host the AST webinars, write on occasion and otherwise try to contribute to the testing community. Also created and maintains an open source list of software testing conferences and workshops.
