Started in testing by mistake after my first job ever ended and I was offered the opportunity of picking up building an automated test suite in selenium.  When studying and during my first development job my biggest thrill was discovering strange defects and then tracking them down in the code base.  I guess it reminded me of the puzzles I used to do when I was younger getting paid to do that seemed like a great idea.  So after building my first automation suite I took another job as a automation tester/java developer and never looked back.

Since then I've built multiple automation frameworks (including patframework.com) using different tools with a focus on building something that works for the specific team.  My current job I am team lead of the test engineering team at Fiserv, with a focus on mobile banking apps.
