"Knowledge should be shared, not siloed, and if properly managed, you can later leverage that knowledge to achieve things you never dreamed possible."
I was a chemist in my ‘previous life’ and stumbled into software engineering quite by accident. Once I got my hands on a keyboard and started helping scientists find the time to focus on their science rather than data management, I knew I’d found my calling.
I joined Genentech in 2008, though it feels like only yesterday. Why am I still here? Every day I interact with the brightest, most passionate and down to earth people imaginable. We collaborate to solve hard problems that make a difference in people’s lives.

My group supports a variety of informatics efforts including our ongoing Protein Science, Pathology, Animal Informatics programs.
