About Me

My name is Ted O'Connor. I'm a hands-on technology executive and software engineer with extensive experience as both a leader and individual contributor in product development, technical operations, and strategic direction. My focus has been on designing and implementing highly available, scalable and secure distributed solutions.

Having worked at both early stage startups and large multi-national corporations I've worn many hats throughout my career. My goal has always been being that go-to person for the problems that no one else could fix. I've done that both as a software developer, a SaaS architect and a team leader.

I am actively involved in the crypto community where my current focus is Solana and NFTs. When not developing blockchain apps I am researching and hopefully investing in the next moonshot.
