A technologist with an appetite for destruction, Sam has made a career of seeking out and eliminating weaknesses in software.
He spends his professional life on the road, embedded in delivery teams across a number of domains, teaching clients to "bake quality in" throughout a feature's lifecycle. Sam strives to build teams without walls, where quality is everyone's responsibility and the traditional expectations of developer and tester have less weight than the idea that every engineer does what is right for the team at the time. When he isn't working, Sam enjoys travelling with his wife, playing jazz guitar, speaking Russian, and studying topics in cyber security and pen testing.
