Most folks call me Jamie.
I love building internet things and happy teams.

About Me

I've been building on the web since I was a teenager. Back when your choice for the internet was AOL or Prodigy, and to connect to it, a call was made by a modem. ☎️

I took a little sabbatical from computers to pursue music for a while, but when that stalled out, I convinced someone to give me money to build them a website in 2007. Thus began a wild and wonderful ride.

This is my personal site, and here are a few things that keep me busy:

Kajabi Logo

I'm currently a Director of Engineering at Kajabi and in charge of the Creator Tools teams. We are responsible for the digital products, emails, and web pages our customers create to build their businesses.

I am the technical co-founder of Daily Minded, a journaling app you'll actually keep up with!

Reply to a daily email, and BOOM, Journaling complete!

The Reluctant EM

My jump into management was challenging. The engineer in me wasn't happy, nor did I understand the position entirely. I managed to fumble through it and have found fulfillment on the other side.

I write about my journey and learnings at The Reluctant EM.

Music continues to be a passion of mine. When I find the time, I combine a sequence of sounds to make a song (or two). I did it enough to put an EP together under the name makemewonder.
