Hello 👋

I'm Brent, a principal software engineer with a career-long focus on UIs and APIs. I specialize in the manufacturing and distribution industries and really enjoy the blend of physical and digital tech that comes along with this space. I also prefer to focus on smaller companies; ranging from pre-seed startups to a few thousand employees.
