I have been working at Fellowship Tech for a little over a year now. One of the most striking things I noticed after coming on board, and something I’m still consistently impressed with, is how well the company as a whole really “gets it” when it comes to software development as a continuous process.
Several years ago, I landed a job as a junior designer / front-end developer, working with and learning from Hugh Griffith and Cody Lindley, respectively. The former taught me how to have an eye for “big-D” design, beyond just the visuals, and the latter pushed me to write more modular, elegant code.
While we have all since moved on to other jobs, these guys instilled in me the desire and drive to constantly be self-teaching.

The following is a brief essay I wrote for a seminary class, based on personal life experience. The assignment was to discuss one’s own leadership style.
For an assignment in my last seminary class before I graduate, we had to discuss with other students what key functions are provided by effective leaders. One of my classmates cited a radio interview with Maestro Lorin Maazel, retired conductor of the N.Y. Philharmonic. Now 79 years old, he reflected upon his prestigious career and what it means to be an effective leader of musicians.
