See my Trailhead Profile

To me, being a Trailblazer means leading the way through innovation, taking risks, and providing support all while having fun doing it.
As a MuleSoft Developer, how do you use Trailhead to skill up?
Some of the skills I learned from Trailhead are related to custom development, integration, change management, and other platforms like Google Cloud and Heroku. I enjoy the gamification of Trailhead and find myself competing with colleagues on who gets the most badges.
What are your favorite activities in the Community to participate in?
I currently co-lead the MuleSoft NYC Meetup group and really enjoy meeting once a quarter with the community. I am always excited to come up with the agenda and to work on the logistics of the event. I have presented at each of my meetup events and have enjoyed the comments and questions that usually follow my content. In addition, I like to write blog posts on trending topics that I believe would resonate with readers within the community. I believe that publishing thought leadership on certain topics will get IT leaders and Architects excited about MuleSoft.
How will MuleSoft be a part of your company's future?
My employer, Silverline, implements innovative solutions using MuleSoft, and we know that a robust data and integration strategy is at the heart of a successful project and a happy client. For our internal systems, we plan to leverage MuleSoft to future-proof our integrations as we continue to grow.
How will Trailhead be a part of your company's future?
My company leverages Trailhead for certification maintenance, education on new releases, and to onboard new resources. We are also going to use MyTrailhead to leverage the platform for all of our internal training. My company focuses on two specific verticals: Financial Services and Health and Life Sciences. Therefore, I can see us using MyTrailhead for a long time to come.
What message do you have for people new to the Communities of MuleSoft and Trailhead?
Make your Trailhead journey fun! Sign up for some quick wins, things you are somewhat familiar with, and start earning some badges. Then throw in a mix of some trails that you are not familiar with and learn some amazing things. I recommend the MuleSoft related content on Trailhead and the free Anypoint Platform Fundamentals course on training.mulesoft.com.
What does being a Trailblazer mean to you?
