Hi. I’m Neil Bourgeois.
I love to solve hard problems. The hardest problems are plagued with uncertainty, risk and complexity. Solutions to these types of problems require that people work together towards a common vision. Usually they involve some degree of technology but they almost always require people to change.
This intersection of problem, people and technology is where I’m at my best.
I’m a relentless self-developer and pursue mastery of my craft. While I spend a great deal of my time working with people I also usually have some kind of side-project I’m hacking on. I love the techincal aspect of Software Engineering but approach problems with a people-first perspective and believe that sometimes the simplest (but not easiest!) solution is to change hearts and minds.
