MICHAEL McGRANAHAN

Software architect and team builder

I'm a creative technologist who, given sufficient C8H10N4O2 and/or Mexican food, efficiently crafts software that is a joy to use and to maintain.

I approach software production with equal doses of empathy and strategy. Empathy helps me to best align contributors, stakeholders and end-users; strategy helps me to promote sustainability and to address compounding costs and benefits. More than a decade of experience leading and contributing to projects across a variety of sectors and organizational types, has instilled in me a deep appreciation for diversity, curiosity, humility, and courage. Specific things I like include C#, the web platform, and XP practices.
