Director of Engineering
Joined Safe Software in February, 2001
What is your role at Safe?
As the Director of Engineering, my primary focus is on leading our Product Integrations team. I’m also involved with developer recruitment and am responsible for project management of several key initiatives.
Which companies does Safe work with on FME integrations?
Esri®, Autodesk®, Integraph®, Pitney Bowes, and many others. My team works closely with all of our partners to ensure our FME integrations and OEM products meet their customers’ needs.
What are you most proud of?
Having interviewed over 1,000 people in the last 10 years, I find it really rewarding to work side-by-side with so many of these very same people each day.
Who was your favorite superhero growing up?
My older brother was really big into superheroes (he’s now a rocket scientist at NASA – no joke!), so I was exposed to many obscure ones like Green Lantern, Atom, and Aquaman, but the one who I liked best was Canada’s own Captain Canuck.
Tell us about some of your hobbies.
I’m a big sports and fishing fanatic. I also love spending time with my family and especially look forward to annual Vera family father/son fishing trip.
