About

I am a full-stack software engineering manager/lead. 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.

It's a pleasure to work with him! Speedy and informational answers, continuously checking on you, trying to make you stay on the right track. Really helped me to navigate my journey as an aspiring developer, gave the recommendation on what should I do next, also always offered multiple paths depending on my specific interests and goals. If you looking for someone to help you break into tech or improve your career I would highly recommend working with Donovan!

I decided to get a mentorship to get an objective vision from a professional perspective on my tech stack and my abilities, and also to navigate me through the process of becoming a software developer.And Donovan is a great match for all of my goals! He's giving me consistent and detailed feedback. He's also helping me to spot my weak spots. I'm really happy to work with him. Highly recommended!

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.

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.
