Engineer. Dreamer.

My name is Johnny. I work at Capital One as a Technology Fellow. My past includes Director of Technology at ISL, Engineering Leadership at Social Tables, Engineering at EverFi and volunteer Co-Curriculum Development Lead for Black Girls Code. I served as an IT advisory board member for the National Academy Foundation, where I helped to ensure students received the resources necessary to prepare them for industry or higher education. From time to time I teach front end web development or JavaScript courses for General Assembly. Although I'm not a designer myself, I'm a huge advocate for data-driven UX, followed up by thoughtful and intentional design. I strongly believe in putting users first.

If you're looking for someone to speak about engineering leadership, JavaScript, diversity and inclusion or just want to say hello, feel free to reach out! You can read my thoughts on Medium.
