Hello, I’m Daniel 👋 I’m a software engineer, leader, and cat daddy. I have worked for years in the mobile development space and now guide a multi-talented team of professionals at Ecordia Studios. As the Chief Technology Officer, I oversee the development of subscription-based mobile apps, ensuring the seamless integration of engineering, design, marketing, and quality assurance. My role involves implementing Agile methodologies, developing CI/CD practices to streamline deployments, and establishing company-wide standards for technologies, code review, and pull requests. Additionally, I am responsible for interviewing, hiring, mentoring, and leading our engineers, fostering their professional growth and career development.

Leading a digital team is a huge balancing act. When do we adopt a sparkly new technology or stick to tried and true methods? When do we take our time perfecting all the intricacies of the product versus getting it out of the door fast? I faced some of these questions as an engineer myself, but these challenges and more are amplified through the new lens of a business leader. I now get to ponder how I can help create the ultimate user experience while also smashing business goals and advancing the company’s mission.

In my free time, I like to read self-development books (you can find my top picks here) and tinker in the AR/VR space. I promise I’m fun too. I also enjoy exploring Austin with my wife-to-be, bingeing everything Marvel and Star Wars, and getting outdoors through camping and a newfound love for electric off-roading.
