In my early years at MathWorks, I was a developer on the Data Acquisition Toolbox and Instrument Control Toolbox, before leading the development of Image Acquisition Toolbox v1.0.

These days, I focus on managing the MATLAB Graphics & App Building area, having worked on the MATLAB graphics R2014b update and the R2016a App Designer launch.

Outside of work - in my oodles of free time - I dabble in some filmmaking and photography projects. And while this is meant to be a creative break from work, every 5 years it seems both worlds intersect (

See you around the community. Oh, and obviously, any advice or opinions posted here are my own, and in no way reflect that of MathWorks.
