I am a full-stack software engineering manager at Zenni Optical. I started my career as a frontend leaning full-stack engineer, then transitioned into a solely backend role before transitioning to the infrastructure and DevOps side of things. I have helped a number of self taught or recent bootcamp grads land their first job as a software developers as well as helped mid level engineers ascend to a senior role. I understand how important it is to have great mentorship but who mentors you is equally as important as what they're telling you. When I mentor folks, I try to be the friend who gives you the advice you need to hear and not just the stuff you want to hear. Click the link below to learn more about my engineering ethos.

Donovan's breadth and depth of experience with a wide variety of cutting-edge software technologies across the stack along with his delight for sharing ideas make for a great mentor. He himself is always hungry to learn new things and that attitude is contagious. As someone who ventured into software development without a traditional CS background Donovan was an amazing guide in helping not only build upon the skills I'd accumulated but also providing insightful suggestions in providing a path forward. He's quick to respond, generous with his time, and always delighted to answer questions. He's great at breaking down difficult concepts in a way that's conversational and easy to grasp. I'd definitely recommend Donovan as a mentor for anyone just starting out or someone with some experience looking to level up.

I have had the pleasure of being mentored by Donovan for the past several months. I can confidently say he has exponentially increased my growth, confidence and knowledge in the software engineering field. When I first started, I had 0 experience in coding and frankly, was feeling quite lost and overwhelmed. He helped me understand what my priorities should be, how to study, and provided me with tons of valuable resources to expedite my learning. Through sessions that involved reviewing my LinkedIn, resume and interview prep, Donovan was able to help me land my first job and I wouldn't have been able to do it without his guidance. On top of his superb ability to explain difficult concepts, Donovan has always been very supportive and encouraging. He has motivated me to always be in opportunities to learn and hone my ability to think critically. I strongly recommend Donovan as a mentor for anyone who is trying to break into tech or even further themselves in the career.

Donovan was a great mentor. He helped me spruce up my resume and linked in profile, prepare for interviews and eventually land a job. He was a great resource to have as I got comfortable in my new position. I highly recommend Donovan as a mentor for anyone in tech whether you have a few years of experience or are just starting out.
